Question by angie: What is the importance of ‘cranking’ in camcoders for filmmaking?

Unless this is something new (always possible!), you’re several decades out of date. The early cine cameras had to be turned (cranked) by hand, but it’s got nothing to do with modern camcorders. Back in the day, hand cranking was a problem because the speed of the film wasn’t steady.
