AbstractA method for producing photographic stills comprises producing a video signal by electronic high resolution scanning of the object to be photographed, writing the video signal into intermediate storage and reading the signal out of intermediate storage to write a photographic still, the time for writing the video signal into intermediate storage being shorter than the time for writing the still. An apparatus for producing photographic stills includes a electronic camera tube and a permanent storage means into which the video signal provided by the camera is written more rapidly than it is read out. The apparatus may also include an inverting video signal storage unit and associated repetition generator.
