High vs Low Tech

I have a digital camera right in front of me. If a Bigfoot walked in front of me, by the time I powered it up and got it set for the lighting, pressed the button (after which there is a slight delay) I would be very lucky to get small blob in the distance. Most likely I would get nothing.
Roger Patterson had a 16 mm movie camera in his saddle bag, wound up and ready to go. He had the presence of mind to grab it when his horse reared and threw him off. He hit the ground running taking pictures as he went. If it had been a digital camera, he would never have gotten the great shot of a bigfoot turning to look directly at him.
My advice to bigfoot hunters: get a good film camera. High tech ain't all it's cracked up to be and is the number one reason we don't have any good photos of Sasquatch.

About Me

My photo
I've lived in the woods and came to know and understand the creatures that inhabit it. I have compassion for all God's creatures, most especially the creature known whimsically as "bigfoot", since he is more like us than any other. I am now an old man and unable to run around in the woods. If I were able I would be out there right now trying to prove his existence. I started this blog to try to express some of the ideas and speculations I have had on bigfoot. I am not into bigfoot social events. I don't gossip about other bloggers. I try to keep myself informed of events. My ideas and opinions are my own and I make no apology for them. They are not written in stone and I welcome any and all civil comments. I am looking for the truth, not fame.
