However, I do have one question about the camera.
When we see the video we see the astronauts and we can hear them communicating to each other through radio.
So, this is my question about the camera's abilities.
Did it have the capability to have sound? Because, as far as I know, the moon has no air, and sound can only travel in air, as far I know anyway. So that means, the camera could not have picked up those radio communications between the astronauts. Otherwise, how would the camera be able to pick up their communications?
Because, if that camera they use didn't have sound capabilities, then that means there would have to have to have been some editing of the sound that we hear.
But please, don't take this mean I am trying to make an argument for a hoax, I am not. I am just asking about the camera.
Strange point. The film recorded by the camera had no sound, and no the camera did not have a mic. The sounds of the astronauts speaking were recorded separately and added to the film afterwards, or simply, as in a live broadcast played simultaneously. I mean you can hear Houston capcom speaking to the astronauts as well, and his mic was on his head back here on Earth.
As for editing, yes of course editing was done, and in some cases this has been claimed erroneously by hoax believers as evidence of fakery. We have seen the same clip with different soundtracks mistakenly or deliberately edited over them. This has to do with how things were done in the editing room back in the 60's/70's and who was contracted to do the editing in the first place. I don't think that having 100% accurate continuity was high on the editors priority list back in those days, and modern fake landing theorists tend to be rather shortsighted and pedantic in this area.
