Excuse me for butting in, but when considering the answers you
get you might want to remember that the 14 seconds was stated by
Barauna to have been the minumum time required to take 6 rapid
shots with his Rolleiflex, measured by the Navy timing him.

This does not necessarily mean that the actual event duration
was 14 seconds (allowing for confusion and excitement, being
jostled - as claimed - and keeping the eye away from the
viewfinder to get a good look etc), and the result was not so
interpreted by the Navy, who IIRC estimated that the duration
was probably "less than1 minute".

There is certainly a tension between plausible duration and
likely duration estimated from cloud motions. This tension may
amount to a discrepancy. But the 14 second figure is a bit of a
red herring.
