Not having the familiarity with this case that Martin Shough and others on the UpDates list do, I can at least submit there is one readily available published estimate to be found, namely in the Navy report see http://www.nicap.org/newevidarticle.htm that followed Bacellar's briefing to the Navy High Command on 27 Jan 1958, in which it is stated explicitly that "The photographs were taken in no more than 30 seconds". If there are any controversies surrounding the authenticity of this report, I am not aware of them, although it does seem to have a somewhat odd provenance. I gather that the thrust of Greg's inquiry is to establish that the brevity of this interval is incompatible with the evolution of the cloud formations in the images. It is straightforward in Photoshop to place corresponding areas of photos #1 and #4 side-by-side and adjust the brightness and contrast to enhance the cloud patterns. I must concede that I would not expect the indicated degree of cloud pattern evolution in a 30 second period, or even twice that. Notwithstanding Martin's persuasive analysis demonstrating that this would not be ruled out meteorologically, it does strike me as an issue of serious concern. But assuming a hoax, it's difficult to believe that Barauna would not have anticipated the potential for such a (perceived) discrepancy and taken pains to avoid it, considering the care and skill, not to mention luck, that attended the scheme as a whole.
