Very interesting report, S&F for the finding.
What we have is two photos taken, as the EXIFs says, 7" apart (note#1 and #3), with an Iphone 4.
Full exifs datas of both photos can be seen using EXIFTool for example:
1-3 The shoots were taken the same day, 2011/09/16 and 7" apart, at 11h16'28" and 11h16'35" and wasn't modified afterward.
2- Technical datas:
* Exposure time: 1/1676
* Aperture value: 2.8
* ISO 80
* Flash auto but did not fire
4- Image resolution max is conform to what we can expect from an Iphone 4, i-e 2592*1936.
5- GPS app on
If we remove the GPS tags from the exifs datas, these are 100% conform to EXIFs datas from
another Iphone 4
Now, we all know that EXIFs datas are not anymore reliable to say whether a picture have been tampered with or not, as it's easy to modify them of
replace them as a whole with a dedicated software or an hexadecimal software.
However, it gives us some technical indications that could help to determine if it's consistent with what we can see in the photo.
One thing that immediately comes to mind is the blurry aspect of the "UFO", that have to be compared with the sharpness of both the distant
background mountains and the airplane close wing.
Meaning that the "UFO" is out of the Depth of Field
, then either very close to the camera and
then very small or very far away from it and then have to be huge (probably at the clouds level
: above 6,000 m
