Paper Abstract

A photographic handbook called The Photographers Guide presents a systematic and quantitative method for selecting camera systems and their conditions of use. Its purpose is to ensure that the required level of object space resolution is successfully recorded. It features a unique nomagraph which relates: resolution in object space, object distance, lens focal length and image plane resolution. Typical field performance data is given for 35mm SLR camera systems. Other data tables cover effects such as handheld cameras at slow shutter speeds, motion, atmospheric effects and depth-of-field degradation. The handbook can be applied to the selection of surveillance systems as well as a broad range of photo-optical instrumentation tasks.
