Improvement in visualization of ultra fast phenomena, using high speed imaging techniques has encouraged researchers to seek more from the equipment they use. As accurate data extraction has become reality the users' expectations have risen stimulating the camera designer's imagination. High speed cameras now include features the operation of which are only possible when controlled by a dedicated computer. High spatial and temporal accuracy derived from different imaging techniques can be positively complementary particularly when recorded through a common optical axis that eliminates errors resulting from parallax. Comprehensive analysis software has considerably increased the extraction of data from electronic imaging allowing critical interrogation of the recorded sequence. Simultaneous framing and streak recording of the same event, broadens the understanding of the processes involved, and has been made possible by the novel optical design used in the Imacon 468. The data collecting potential offered by these simultaneous recording techniques extends considerably the information derived from experimental procedures.
