Abstract : High-speed framing cameras, which make use of rotating mirrors acting as field stops, exhibit a changing field of view and frame size as the mirror rotates. The use of the frame edge as a reference line in data analysis from the film requires that the magnitude of these effects be known. A discussion of these effects and calculations of their magnitude for a Beckman and Whitley model 189 framing camera are given. (Author)
