Paper Abstract

A flashlight system has been developed to generate high intensity luminance which would allow high speed imaging up to 10,000 frames per second in the field where there was no power supply or in a room with restricted power capacity. It gives higher luminance than continuous light sources thus making it possible to set shorter exposure times and use a smaller aperture lens at the same framing rate. We have obtained many successful color images by using a combination of this light source and a 16 mm rotating prism camera. This paper outlines the features of the flashlight system, and describes some applications that make best use of this system.
