Paper Abstract

The authors describe a new large-format synchronized high-speed framing camera. The camera has a framing rate of 2.5 x 106 frames/ sec with a frame size of 64 by 38 mm and a 26-frame record length. The new camera uses a beryllium rotating mirror with an isosceles-triangle cross section that allows a large mirror surface of 36 by 24 mm at the design speed of 104 revolutions/sec. Magnification of 1.8 in the internal optics of the camera gives the larger picture on 70-mm color film.
