Paper Abstract

The purpose of this discussion is to familiarize readers with an overview of high-speed imaging technology as a means of analyzing objects in motion that occur too fast for the eye to see or conventional photography or video to capture. This information is intended to provide a brief historical narrative from the inception of high-speed imaging in the USA and the acceptance of digital video technology to augment or replace high-speed motion picture cameras. It is not intended a definitive work on the subject. For those interested in greater detail, such as application techniques, formulae, very high-speed and ultra speed technology etc. I recommend the latest text on the subject: High Speed Photography and Photonics first published in 1997 by Focal Press in the UK and copyrighted by the Association for High Speed Photography in the United Kingdom.
