The ZhLV-1 high-speed, slave, slow-motion camera is described. This camera is convenient in that it can be used as a framing camera for photography at a speed of 45,000 to 4,200,000 frames per second and as a streak or smear camera with slit scanning and time resolution up to 2 x 10 to the minus 8th power sec. The high speed of rotation of the scanning mirrors up to 90,000 rpm is achieved by maintaining a vacuum in the interior of the camera. The frame size and image scale can be selected according to the experimental conditions. The focal length can be varied from 50 to 450 mm. A large volume of information is assured by the high photographic resolution on the 35-mm film with a large frame height and high speed.
