Because of world UFO day the Twitter account of the CIA posted some old guidance documents about how to take (good) UFO pictures.

See: www.twitter.com…

Despite this document being dated I was wondering if there are some (amateur) photographers here on ATS who would like to give their take on these
documents, or even open up a discussion on capturing UFO/UAP’s on film/digital form in general.

As I said the document seems dated and points to the use of Tri-X film. This type of film seems to have an ISO value of 320 or 400. The document
suggests not using a shutter speed below 1/100.

Now, as a child of the digital age, the combination of 1/100 with ISO 400 to me doesn’t seem to be aimed at capturing fast (illuminated) moving
objects/phenomena, though I’m aware we are talking about the 40’s-50’s (can’t find a date on the released documents).

From my own experience, 1/250 still gives some blur when dealing with fast movement, like for instance taking pictures of race cars on top speed in
normal daylight. 1/100 is the bare minimum when not using a tripod in certain conditions (if you don’t have a steady hand).

I’m aware playing around with other settings like diaphragm, lens types, etc. could give various results. That’s in fact the reason of my post.

As this is my first topic, please feel free to give your take on the subject, hands on experience of capturing on film using these older types of
cameras, applying this info to the modern age, …

Who knows we’ll find some clues or at least learn something along the way.

Shoot!
