Movie camera

A type of photographic camera which takes a rapid sequence of photographs on an image sensor or on a film.

The movie camera, film camera or cine-camera is a type of photographic camera which takes a rapid sequence of photographs on an image sensor or on a film. In contrast to a still camera, which captures a single snapshot at a time, the movie camera takes a series of images; each image constitutes a "frame". This is accomplished through an intermittent mechanism. The frames are later played back in a movie projector at a specific speed, called the frame rate (number of frames per second). While viewing at a particular frame rate, a person's eyes and brain merge the separate pictures to create the illusion of motion.[1]

Since the 2000s, film-based movie cameras have been largely (but not completely) replaced by digital movie cameras.
