Samsung MEMS cameraphone shutter Here's a pic of Samsung's clever micro electro-mechanical (MEMS) shutter, designed to make high-megapixel cameraphones take rather better photos than they currently can.

I get how it helps with a still picture for the reasons given, but how does a shutter help with capturing smoother video? Surly it just means the first frame and the last frame are "crisper" without affecting the stuff in the middle?
