Paper Abstract

While streak cameras in particular, and strip cameras to an almost equal extent, are widely used in high speed photography, the level of sophistication achieved by these systems makes them appear much more complex than they really are. In this presentation the principles of slit shutter and scanning photographic techniques are related to ordinary focal plane shutter operation parameters. The commonalities and similarities between high speed and low speed systems are presented in very basic fashion. Photofinish, velocity recording, panoramic, peripheral and perspectiveless photography are among the applications explained and illustrated. Basic equipment suitable for experimentation is also described.
