Paper Abstract

A quick review of the imaging problems encountered with rotating prism camera systems will be presented. The system performance of a diffraction limited objective when added to a rotating prism camera will be shown. The design considerations of a photographic objective designed specifically for use with rotating prisms will be briefly discussed. The methods of testing a lens and the rotating prism will be presented. Interference tests wilt be shown for a new rotating prism camera lens as will similar tests on a standard photographic objective when used on the rotating prism camera.
