Paper Abstract

The most difficult task to do in high speed photography is to define exactly what high speed photography is. Basically it is the use of photographic means to record and analyse subjects which change too rapidly for the eye to follow. But when one examines the index of subjects considered at these International Congresses, it is soon obvious that the term 'photographic' is quite elastic and includes radiations outside the visible spectrum, detectors other than photographic emulsions and will soon include other methods of recording and storage than films. This is confusing and disturbing to newcomers to the subject but taken by the experienced only as a natural extension into new techniques to achieve the same ends.
