ULTRACAM is an ultra-fast, triple-beam CCD camera, designed to study one of the few remaining unexplored regions of observational parameter space - high temporal resolution. Recently funded in full (£292 k) by PPARC, it will see first light in 2001 and will be used on 2-m, 4-m and 8-m class telescopes in Australia, the Canary Islands and South Africa to study astrophysics on the fastest timescales.
