That has always been the case when it comes to UFO/ET footage.
1) If the photo/film footage is too shaky and of low quality. Then the assumption is made that the person purposely created the event in low quality
standards with the intent of covering up the evidence of their hoax.
2) If the photo/film footage is clear and mid to high quality. Then the assumption is made that it "looks too professional" and was created with
the sole purpose of intent to hoax.
Bit of a 'Damned if you, damned if you don't' situation.
I am not claiming that all of the footage that is presented to us is real, nor am I claiming that all footage presented to us is fake. What I am
stating is that each piece of information that is presented should be looked at and a decision of real or fake should be made based on something more
substantial than "it's too fuzzy" or "it's too perfect".
Now on topic .. My thoughts of this video are less than stellar. We're unable to see the full resolution original images which could either show a) a
streelamp as suggested or something along the same lines or b) an actual UFO abduction of a "bison or horse" as stated by the owner of the footage.
The author caims that he used a camcorder to record the event. I would like to see the actual footage in full resolution instead of a small clip on
the internet that has become the victim of video compression.
If the footage was filmed on a camcorder as stated, then the original full resolution footage would not be as severely distorted and pixelated when
viewed full screen. Which is the case when I viewed the footage on my 20 inch monitor.
The distortion and pixelation could result from the object being filmed is at such a distance away from the shooter that he had to use full zoom to
capture the event while recording and thus losing a great deal of detail and quality. Having said that .. The original would still not be AS distorted
or pixelated as the safe for internet sized version of the film.
The author claims that he was unable to see the UFO abducting the 'bison or horse' until he watched the playback of the video on a big screen, which
indicates to me that the original film is of higher quality than what we have been given via The Sun website.
Of course there could be other explinations for the video to be lower quality. Things like, formatting an analog video to digital format. Since he is
in the UK, we would have compression lose to due converting PAL (25 fps) to NTSC (30 fps) format. The frame rate conversion actually results in a loss
of temporal resolution, as PAL has a lower frame rate than NTSC.
Once again, the resultant image is of less actual resolution than the original image, as information is discarded spatially and made up temporally.
