Abstract
High-speed photographic activity in North America during the past few years has been concentrated in a few important areas. Electronic cine and streak camera capability has increased rapidly under pressure from the controlled thermonuclear fusion program. Micro channel electronic image intensifier plates are providing great gains in sensitivities of modern high-speed cameras of all types. Cine x-radiography is rapidly gaining attention and is expected to become a major research field in the near future. Pulsed lasers are finding increasing applications as fast, intense light sources for conventional photography. They also provide illumination for fast holographic cameras. Finally, we expect considerable activity in the near future when interrelations between these new technology areas are exploited.
