Equipment is described for making photographs using an image converter tube as an electronic shutter. When operating in the framing mode, the camera will take three frames 10 to 10,000 psec apart with exposure times from 0.5 to 5000 psec. Each frame has a maximum diameter of 25 mm. When operating in the streak mode, the camera has streak times from 10 to 10,000 p.sec. The streak picture is about 60mm long and 25mm wide. The equipment uses the RCA 73435D image converter tube. A standard oscilloscope camera is used to record the images. Design of the equipment is discussed and circuits for controlling and timing the photographs described.
