Overview

The book forms an introduction to high speed photography, principally for those who wish to investigate its almost limitless potential as a tool for instrumentation, measurement and analysis in both research and development work. It will also interest those who are mainly concerned with standard photographic and digital imaging procedures but need to know more about high speed recording. As a university textbook it is ideally suited to those undertaking postgraduate research, as well as to undergraduates on courses that include film production, biomedical imaging, scientific photography and applied imaging.

The development of new technologies in the fields of photonics, digital systems and computers has resulted in many exciting innovations in high speed photography (HSP) and its commercial, industrial and military applications. This book forms a definitive work on the subject and was written to fill a hitherto uncovered gap in the available literature on this topic. Compiled by a leading team of international experts and written with the cooperation of the Association for High Speed Photography (AHSP) under the Editorship of Sidney F. Ray, this is the most authoritative work on the subject to date.

    Decent book but loses its way

    Generally it's a fairly good book on high-speed photography. It comes with all kinds of circuit designs and discussions on circuits etc. The big omission is anything on how to build a high-speed flash. Shadowgraphs are dealt with very briefly without any real mention on how to take shadowgraphs. The same can be said about other forms of high-speed photography. The author clearly has experience of some aspects but is writing the rest of the book very much as a report on what's around without any practical experience.

    This book is a very good starting point for high speed photography but needs to be bigger and developed better.
