Abstract
We developed an ultrahigh-speed, high-sensitivity, color camera that captures moving images of phenomena too fast to be perceived by the human eye. The camera operates well even under restricted lighting conditions. It incorporates a special CCD device that is capable of ultrahigh-speed shots while retaining its high sensitivity. Its ultrahigh-speed shooting capability is made possible by directly connecting CCD storages, which record video images, to photodiodes of individual pixels. Its large photodiode area together with the low-noise characteristic of the CCD contributes to its high sensitivity. The camera can clearly capture events even under poor light conditions, such as during a baseball game at night. Our camera can record the very moment the bat hits the ball.
