Paper Abstract

All major specialty areas of the high speed photography and photonics field have experienced rapid development during the past two years and may be expected to continue to do so. ,Intelligent film annotation devices promise to make a major impact upon the applications of pin registered cameras. The advent of color and ultra high speed videography promise other rapid advances. Rotating prism cameras should shortly enjoy advantages of modern film annotation. Top speeds of 16mm reel-to-reel cameras should be extended well beyond 10,000 fps. in the near future. Full use of beryllium as a rotating mirror material for modern cine' and framing cameras is increasing performance capabilities markedly. Emphasis in the development of electronic cameras is shifting toward enhancement of information content of individual records and making cameras more responsive to particular experimental needs. Finally, two new technologies, high speed holography and pulsed laser cinematography show promise of becoming important new technology areas of their own within the near future.
