Ok.. what is the point of a 2x zoom if it does not double the size of something?
If I took a picture of a skyscraper from 25 miles away, and zoomed in 2x, would you agree it would be exactly 2 times taller? It would still be tiny, sure.. but would it be twice as tall with a 2x zoom?

Ok, how can I get the original footage onto ATS?

I walked outside to see if my dog was barking at a brown snake (deadly snake here in Australia) as it was about 40 degrees Celsius that day and it really brings the snakes out in the open.
As soon as I stepped outside my dog became totally quiet and huddled up in the corner of his couch on the veranda. I immediately noticed the shiny metallic saucer in the sky, hovering above the grape vines, which expand beyond the green fence seen in the videos...
I honestly at first thought it was some kind of balloon, much like the balloon in the "Balloon hoax" that happened in America lately with the boy. I just stood there transfixed on this thing hovering, the sight of it had completely shocked my mind and my heart was beating a million miles an hour once I had realized it wasn't acting at all like a balloon.
It had a slight waver to it, so it wasn't totally still while hovering, ever so slightly wobbling but you can't really see this in the video's due to the typical quality of a mobile phone. (The craft was also a lot shinier in real life, the hot sun was really beating off the top of the craft while the underbelly was in shadow, also wasn't really picked up by the camera quality)
It started to move off to the left as I was filming, and it's strange for me to think back it all seems like such a blur now... I could have sworn I was breathing heavy and swearing out loud at the excitement and total SHOCK at what I was seeing and filming. But when I look back at the video strangely enough I wasn't making any sound whatsoever.
I was home alone that day, except for my dog. I do remember the whole time my mind was screaming at me to race inside and look for my dad's video camera to get some better footage, but just did not have the courage to leave in case I got back outside and it was gone. (This is precisely what happened when I DID make myself move to get the camera, which I never did find because my dad had it in his ute after a trip up north of Australia)
In the video "Multiple Objects" you will see the saucer move to the left, a small object was rising up from the grape vines below and heading up towards the saucer.
It was at this point I raced inside to find dad's camera).... Came back outside and there was absolutely no trace of anything. Just gone.
It is my theory that whoever was inside this thing was paying a general interest in the watering of the grape vines below, and had sent out it's smaller orb or whatever the heck it was to check it out, collect water, study the grapes, I don't really know..
Looking back I really wish I had stepped out off the veranda and shown some reference points as to where I was and where the craft was in the sky, I can see now why in so many UFO videos the camera operator is just glued to where they are, almost in an altered state from what is before them in the sky.
Anyway, here are the videos!!

Just as a side not: your footage did remind me of one from France- can't remember if the French vid was determined to be fake or not but the similarities are there (also in no way is this to insinuate that yours is fake.)
