Subject: Whittlesea Case Camera Info


Some more information about the camera used to take this image
may be found here:


Particularly pertinent to analysis is that this camera has a
'sharpening' algorithm described as follows:

"Sharpness: Provides three options for sharpening or softening a
picture: Sharp: Highlights the edges contained within your
images so that they stand out more. Standard: Captures the image
and stores it as is with no changes to sharpness. Soft: Blurs
fine details so that they become "softer" and edges of objects
blend into the image."

The camera has a 'wide angle' mode, with an aperture range of
f/2.8-16 in 'wide angle'.

The review also states that "Standard working range for image
capture is between 20 inches (0.5 m) and infinity in wide angle
or telephoto mode" and that the lens "is almost totally free of
geometric distortion, across its full focal-length range."

Many thanks to Tony Cook of VUFORS (Victorian UFO Research
Society), who sent over this link. The media approached VUFORS
to investigate this case shortly after the image was made

Tony informs me that he would be willing to approach Whittlesea
city council for further information and possibly visit the
site. To that end, if anyone has any questions you'd like
forwarded along with my own queries to the photographer by way
of Tony and Whittlesea council, please let me know either on-
 list or via email over the next few days (I plan to send my
'questionairre' by the end of the week). Naturally, I'll post
the response to the list as and when received.

Best to all,
