The author and his colleagues have established a new frontier of protein crystallography by developing a novel screenless Weissenberg camera using SR-X-rays at the PF. Luckily, just the first prototype of the camera was being developed, an imaging plate (IP) was also being developed coincidentally for medical use. We combined the camera with IPs and SR-X-rays and established a new data collection system at the PE. This led us to take the initiative of opening this camera system to the worldwide user community of protein crystallographers. Recently, an automated data collection system with fully cylindrical IP-cassettes named Galaxy has been completed based on a totally new idea. Finally time-resolved protein crystallography with monochromatic X-rays and the advanced Galaxy system is discussed.
