That's why electronic cameras such as the Polaroid version you described
should oversample in the temporal domain so that motion blur (temporal
integration) can be controlled. If you do data reduction in the camera
system you would also then control the degree of motion blur (shutter angle
vs. fstop vs. film speed vs. lighting) at the camera as it is done now. If
the full data stream is recorded this is then a post production option.
