High Speed Imaging 50 Years Ago

A 1965 film shows how high speed cameras were implemented and used at that time. To my surprise, they were able to achieve 1ns exposure time and speeds of millions fps in the purely mechanical systems:


  1. Rotary multiple facet mirror was a common adoption for such design(for imaging ABomb explosion).

  2. Interesting USNOL film. Wonder what the intended audience was? Congress maybe?
    Seems @12:17 it is actually a 1964 film.

    Also, I didn't hear Harold Edgerton's name but maybe I missed it.
