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

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/84/Bundesarchiv_Bild_101II-MW-4462-16%2C_Filmberichter_auf_U-132.jpg Almost certainly a cameraman holding camera in his hands could not walk around deck under such conditions in action. I don't think we can talk about "walk". I think it's more like i...

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

@hans zurbriggen On February 3rd was caliber shooting. During Cerberus anti-ship artillery was perpared for anti-aircraft purposes, but wasn't used . "....wurde in keinem Fall eingesetzt..." [...was used in no case...] In the meantime I found some very nice pictures of the Arriflex without tripod: 1...

@hans zurbriggen

Thank you very much for the picture. It's from a secondary artillery excercise, isn't it?

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

I have no evidence for or against it, but I would be very grateful, if you could show me a picture of a camera on a tripod used on a Kriegsmarine warship at high speed with ship rolling, pitching and turning hard. I haven't seen that before.

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

Hello, to Mr.Nilsson writing: 'Do you have any evidence that a tripod was used at all and that this tripod was bolted to the main deck?' I have images of tripod camera, never seen it hand managed. To me too bulky equipment to be managed in action with ship shaking hard without tripod. Do you have a...

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

Hello, thanks Mr. Nilsson, I know. Prinz Eugen turning is logical as camera could not be moved while operating. I would suggest to focus on what can be understood from images in topic, without extending the discussion to the whole battle. My fault for speaking about the film. Do you have any eviden...

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

I understand. Yes, that's a possible explanation...with a lot of consequences causing a lot of questions.

So why did Bismarck turn about 2 Minutes before Prinz Eugen?

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

@hans zurbriggen

Yes, possibly. On the other hand: at the beginning of the battle sequence the stancion to the left of the garbage chute moves from the extreme left of the movie out of the right edge within about 15 seconds while Bismarck remains near the center.

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

Hello, to Mr. Nilsson writing: 'The person who made the film sequence seems to be moving towards the railing ': I do not think movie (film) camera could be moved in any way during sequence. Afaik it was mounted on pedestal and quite bulky: it could only be elevated and trained by operator but only ...

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

@wadinga The two 90 degree photos align the top chain closely with the horizon and looking at the crowds on deck picture, this chain is at about waist level, not chest high. Therefore it is likely a stills photographer, perhaps kneeling for more stability, took these pictures. Possibly...or the came...

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

Hello Herr Nilsson. Can we be careful about terms film and photos? There is movie film of Bismarck taken from the starboard side of PG. Is there any suggestion that is from the same location? I was talking about the movie film when I wrote film sequence. The camera is moving closer towards the rail...

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

If Herr Nilsson's photo shows the stanchions in question, I wonder if this might act as further confirmation that the 'flash' photo was taken either through one of the air-ports or the door immediately behind leading to the galley, which suggests an angle within 20 or 30 degrees from directly off t...

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

Hello, thanks to Mr. Nilsson for the clear photo. After you found it, I saw the same position, less clearly, in photo of Lutjens visit at Gotenhafen (see below). Well..no. The rope is wraped around a detachable rack. The stanchions are very hard to see in this picture. stanchions.jpg Place 1: verti...

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

Sorry for my delayed answer. I was (and still am) pretty sure that the picture was taken on wheather deck, but Hans' proposed positions on the boat deck made me feel unsecure so I decided to trawl through my archive last weekend. Some thoughts: Place 1: There were no railings and stanchions in the a...
