The Moy & Bastie has a wonderful movement known as "Drunken Screw".
Most cameras had around a 160º shutter angle. The difference of just
a few degrees in the shutter meant a lot to a cameraman when
the ASA of film was around 5. Mechanically it was very difficult to
get a machine to move the film one frame and return for the next
frame within the shutter shaft rotation of 180º. Interestingly, the
mechanics of this camera are adapted from the steam engine and the
treadle sewing machine.
