1 September 1975 The Super-8 Reticle Recording Camera
Author Affiliations +
This paper examines the history of gun cameras and their evolution from commercial cine cameras to the contemporary units. The distinctions between reticle recording, instrumentation, strike and reconnaissance photography are examined to permit a more exact definition of the desired function. An analysis of the minimum resolution and acuity required in this role is used to establish the adequacy of the Super-8 format. Conclusions which may be drawn from the study are listed. The influence of these conclusions on the design for the CA-808 is considered and the camera is then briefly described.
