Abstract

The important relationships among the parameters of rotating mirror cameras are derived, and the consequences for exposure-limited application are discussed. The internal optical geometry of both smear and framing cameras is presented, and the optimum mirror position obtained. Some suggestions for mechanical design are given. The information should be useful both to designers and to purchasers.
