Would anyone be interested in a hand crank? I'm about to build one for myself and figured somebody else might like to have one. It will attach to the side of the camera, where the backwind knob attaches, and utilize that shaft to operate the camera. There is no damage that can be done to the camera's internals by doing this and the camera doesn't have to be modified. I thought it might be interesting to shoot some footage the way they shot in the old, old days.

It can only be used on the 4008 ZMII and up, and the 5008.

I'm still working out the specs and materials, so I don't have a price as of yet, but I should have one within the next couple of weeks.

Hi, Seth

I'm interested. Now, if you'd develop a spring motor for the same driveshaft, I wouldn't have to worry about batteries or uneven exposure!
