flow camera

Relationships
Synonym: 

n. ~ Equipment designed to reproduce large quantities of documents on microfilm.

Notes: 

Flow cameras film documents while they are being transported through the device. The film is also in motion during filming, and optics ensure that the image of the document is stationary relative to the film. The width of the original is limited by the camera, but the length of the original is, theoretically, limited only by the length of the film.
