Abstract
To record fast physical phenomena that occur in microscopic time scales requires an imaging system that can accurately dissect the event and prove a spatial and temporally resolved record that allows critical interrogation. The luxury of having a dedicated photographer to capture the type of event, which necessitates a high-speed camera, has passed into history. Consequently, the imaging system is regarded as a peripheral of the experimental procedure and needs to be user friendly in its operation. This, allied to the modern researcher's expectations, dictates that it must be computer controlled and produce records that can be analyzed using software that readily provides quantitative data. To satisfy a wide range of research conditions the camera has to be immune to external influences and operate in widely diverse environmental conditions. To accommodate the wide spectrum of applications the system must be flexible, reliable and produce trustworthy result in reasonable timescales.
