A method is proposed for the estimation of image streak camera time resolutions which has its basis in the probability of a photodetector's recording of n photoelectrons for time T. The information about the dynamics of images forming in the electrooptic photochronograph and the estimates of time resolution are thereby achieved without supercharging the photocathode. Femtosec resolution can be established by means of pulses of tens of picosec resolution.
