image motion-compensating magazine

A magazine in which the film moves in relation to the ground movement at the time the shutter is tripped. This results in sharp pictures without the use of high shutter speeds. The magazine is used to advantage on low-level high-speed photo-reconnaissance missions, as well as on low-altitude night missions where low shutter speeds are normally used.
