At the 13th Congress in Tokyo, I presented a paper with this title in which some early history was mentioned followed by a more detailed study of the activities of the main research groups in Britain from the period between 1950 and 1978. On this occasion, some early topics will be mentioned. The period since 1978 has seen quite a few changes in that research is now more in the hands of commercial groups as opposed to the previous governmental laboratories. It is true that the pricipal camera systems have reached towards their physical limits. However other new techniques are still expanding, for example, Lasers, Holography and Videography. The new systems are principally in the hands of major or specialist companies with the offical and industrial research groups using their products. The Association for High Speed Photography continues to encourage both researchers and users by providing oportunities for users, suppliers and manufacturers to meet and discuss.
