|WikiProject Film||(Rated Start-class)|
The article implies that an intermittent mechanism is not used in a camera for some reason to do with the shutter. This is wrong, of course - in a typical camera the film still must be stationary during exposure. The only exception would be in a camera that uses a rotating prism - typically only a very high speed camera. I'm too tired to edit now, but will check back. --JSR
"The intermittent mechanism or intermittent movement is the device by which film is regularly advanced and then held in place for a brief duration of time in a movie camera or movie projector."
