high-speed photography

[′hī ‚spēd fə′täg·rə·fē]
(graphic arts)
Photography to record movement or events that occur too quickly to be observed by usual visual or photographic means; motion pictures may be shot at high speeds (50-500 frames per second) and projected at normal rates, so that the action of the subject is slowed to a point where it can be observed; or a series of individual still photos may be produced.

They were made using specialist techniques including ultraviolet and infrared, time lapse and high speed photography and electron microscopy.
The OV8835 is built on a new and improved OmniBSI-2 pixel architecture that offers best-in-class pixel performance and enables full resolution 8-megapixel high speed photography at 30 frames per second (FPS) and 1080p/30 or 720p/60 high-definition (HD) video.
During 2009 Vision3 has shot a range of 3-D projects using a variety of techniques including high speed photography, time-lapse, motion control, greenscreen and specialist snorkel photography.
High speed photography has historically been one method used to determine the behaviour of specimens under very high rates of deformation, but the costs involved and the technical difficulty of getting good results has limited its uptake to a relatively small number of users.

Later, leaf, drop, and focal plane shutters and more light sensitive ("faster") emulsions made it possible to stop movement, and the development of strobe and flash techniques opened up the world of high speed photography, permitting observation of phenomena which occurred at speeds beyond the range of perception of the human eye.
