Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, to Mr. pgollin: instead, I would say the 'problem' is that you ignore the only facts here: 1) we are discussing Bismarck track, not heavy cruisers tracks. 2) Mr. Bonomi map respects all available evidences. 3) Mr. Jurens said that he came to same conclusions based on 'independent examination ...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, Thanks Mr. Dunmunro. I have read some alternative theories from you regarding these aspects, that are in no way related to Bismarck track reconstruction that we are discussing here. Still, no complete reconstruction can be built using your assumptions, due to other conflicting evidences. Mr. ...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, to Mr,Jurens writing: ' Basically, aside from the rather poorly drawn and incomplete track chart of Prinz Eugen, what we really have is a collection of anecdotal comments, a few snips of (probably heavily edited) film, and a few photographs which hardly can be considered more than 'snapshots'...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, to pgollin writing: 'The whole point of others' arguments is that the available evidence is insufficient/incomplete to support any claim that the map/reconstruction is "consistent - and no one can claim that it is "accepted" by anyone/everyone' Very politely, everyone who has recently publise...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, I said I will not accept the polemic, more (Mr. Dunmunro) or less (Mr. northcape) kindly expressed above. Logic: it is a fact that there is no other consistent reconstruction available today, not an opinion. Mr. northcape and Mr. Dunmunro are invited to build themselves (or to show from anoth...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, I repeat that it is not worth continuing this debate. To Mr.Jurens writing: 'the photo can be 'interpreted' so as to support almost any pre-determined theory or, conversely, almost any theory can be successfully generated from the photograph.' My point is simply that there is no other theory ...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, to Mr. Wadinga writing: 'I consider his map even less acceptable than before, given the new evidence we have.' Respectfully, so be it. Instead, I say that Mr. Bonomi map is the most consistent and widely accepted, among the published ones. If a better exists, I have not seen yet. Possibly som...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, thanks Mr. Nilsson, I agree mast height is more precisely 46,5 (without small antenna, obviously not visible in film) than 45 meters. With the quality of the film available however, I do not feel it is worth to go more in detail, as other measuements have to be approximated when using the ima...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, to Mr. Wadinga writing: 'Are you saying you believe the axis of the camera in Bild 146-1990-061 is actually at 50-60 degrees and not 90 to the railing? ' Thanks to Mr. Wadinga for posting Mr. Jurens sentence, that I had evidently missed. Despite that, I still believe angle was not 90° but 50 ...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, to Mr. Wadinga writing: 'I believe Bill's analysis agrees with the speculation that these three photos under consideration here show Bismarck and Prinz Eugen starting on right angle courses to each other' Very respectfully, I do not believe so. Can you please show where (here or in his book-a...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, to Mr. Jurens: I see your considerations. However, willing to reconstruct a battle, we must use what we have. Even if NH69722 photo has been heavily cropped (to be demonstrated anyway as there are several versions available), than initial distance is even more than 2500 meters, surely not les...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, to Mr. Jurens writing: 'I'd be interested in knowing how the distance to Bismarck at 'battle start' (Photo NH69722) was actually derived ': thanks for the explanations. There is good summary at link http://www.kbismarck.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=482&hilit=NH69722&start=45#p3718 with dista...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, I agree with Mr. Angel for formation distance. However Bismarck was quite more far (c 2500 meters) at battle start (photo NH69722). Having already concluded her turn at film start, I suspect a higher distance, 'reduced' by the use of the 75 mm telelens. To Mr. Nilsson: are you aware which kin...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, to Mr. Jurens writing: 'the standard motion picture 35mm frame was essentially 24.9 mm by 18.7 mm in size' many, many thanks Mr. Jurens for this info. I was wrong in my previous calculations assuming size was the same as photographic one (c 35 mm x 24 mm). However I have not understood the wh...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello, many thanks, Mr. Nilsson. Assuming the image in the film is not cropped, etc., I wonder whether Mr. Jurens can help to determine how distant is Bismarck from Prinz Eugen in the film using the 3 different objectives on a 35 mm film. To me 75 mm (not anyway a great telelens) was used, for diffe...
