One other problem I have with the video is the time format and frame
rate. the 03-11-2039 date is written using an almost an exclusively
American format of day-month-year when most European, middle east
and most asian cameras would use Year-Month-Day as the
default date setting....and I would also like to mention the
the difference between 29.97 NTSC frame rate versus the PAL 25 frames
per second used by most of Europe and Asia so I say BS on the video!
I would also mention the date & time stamp and clock counter
look rather clean versus the rest of the video so this means
a POST-PRODUCTION OVERLAY was done (i.e. a layer alpha-channel
keyed over a secondary main layer of video)
And I say that because even AFTER compression to the Youtube video
format, the text and counters STILL look clean so it indicates to me
multi-layer compositing in post-production.
I should ALSO MENTION the video was shot or compressed
anamorphically which means to compress the horizontal portion
of the video in such a way so as to fit a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio
onto a 4:3 aspect ratio screen, therefore you see the weird squeezed-look
on Youtube. Anamorphic lenses (or cameras) are usually professional
level and not usually present in handy-cam style cameras and thus
indicative of a PRODUCED video rather than a Live scene.
My guess is a Sony PDP-150 or Canon X1/XL2 or similar camera
was used for the type of video I see... and the video intentionally
downgraded to make it look like a consumer level video.
