In 1887 he was (with Johannes Gaedicke) co-inventor of the photographic magnesium powder flash-light. Later he worked for the optical company Schulze & Barthels in Rathenow, where he developed telescopes, binoculars and one of the first tele lenses for cameras. 1894 he went to Voigtländer & Sohn in Braunschweig. In 1899 he became the successor of Prof. Hermann Wilhelm Vogel at the Royal Technical University in Berlin as professor for photography, photo chemistry and spectral analysis.
Wilhelm Bermpohl built a 3-color camera designed by Miethe which had been introduced to the public in 1903. Miethe was also one of the lens developers for the early Bermpohl cameras. In 1901 he discovered how to sensitize panchromatic film material for exposures with ethyle red.
Later he focused more on astronomical photography.
Miethe was one of the editors of the German photography magazine Das Atelier des Photographen.
