Nojima Haruo devised the fundamental part of high speed cameras.
He worked on the development of high speed cameras at Hamamatsu Industrial School (present Shizuoka University) as an assistant of a professor. This camera was called the microscope of moments. Haruo devised a mechanism to apply hexahedral prisms. In 1939, he became a professor and proceeded with his study. He created a camera that records 10,000 frames per second in 1939. This invention was thought as significant as the TV Takayanagi Kenjirō developed.
He died of illness at young age of 42.
