A novel high-speed multi-frame photographic system is presented in this paper. The system demonstrates exceptional compactness and flexibility, requiring only the introduction of a cavity comprising multiple beam-splitters in the optical path to enable multi-frame imaging of sub-nanosecond events. The number and temporal delay of frames can be easily adjusted by adjusting the distance and angle between beam-splitters. These capabilities are demonstrated by observing the laser ablation process, highlighting the great potential for application in capturing ultrafast time-evolving events such as optical breakdown, the evolution of laser-produced plasmas, and the propagation of shock waves.
