The last video taken of Madeleine McCann.
« on: June 08, 2018, 02:41:41 PM »
I find it difficult to believe that none had phones with them that night.
Even when on holiday people seem to carry their mobile with them.
I believe everything. And l believe nothing.
I suspect everyone. And l suspect no one.
I gather the facts, examine the clues... and before   you know it, the case is solved!"

Or maybe not -   11 years and still no solution.

Watershed mate!
May 2007 mobile 'phones and the internet were both in their infancy, not many people had them or knew how to use them and anyway they were too expensive to use  [sic].
That's the same 2007 when "The Waltzing Weasel" up by Chapel en le Frith had a kin great notice on the front door declaring it to be "Mobile Phone Free" and railways had quiet carriages.
It's okay to reinvent the wheel, but only when you understand how the current wheel works.

And yet, if we take the airport video sequences at face value, we are led to believe that someone had a mobile phone capable of recording video.
Funny old life.

How did you figure it was recorded on a mobile phone?

11 years ago people were not as obsessed with their phones as they are now.  Few phones were smartphones then and if you were on holiday you wouldn’t be expecting many calls and texts.

This is very true VS, AND it was expensive as well. However, they took their with them, and many people used the 02 free text services, even if you were with Orange...[EE, TMobile]

That proves nothing, unless that clip was posted by one of the parents in question?

That wasn't what Robi asked.
He effectively asked for a cite. I provided one.
The fact that you don't like it is irrelevant as far as I'm concerned.

There was nothing to say that the footage had to have been taken using a phone though.  By 2007 there is nothing to say that someone in the company was not in possession of a camera capable of taking short video clips depending on the size of the memory card used.

Wired for sound
In 1995, the first digital camera to shoot both still photos and movie footage with sound appeared. The Ricoh RDC-1 included a removable 64mm (2.5-inch) colour LCD screen. The CCD packed a 768x480-pixel resolution, while the zoom clocked in at 3x and f/2.8. More than a decade later and those are still the baseline specs for compacts (apart from the resolution, of course).

The RDC-1 would have set you back a hefty $1,500.

In 1996, I started with one of the first point and shoot digital cameras. This unit was the Ricoh RDC-1, and it was REALLY expensive.

Why is this an issue on a thread about what Kate saw when she checked on her children?
The remit of Operation Grange is to investigate ...  "(as if the abduction occurred in the UK)"

I neither like it, nor dislike it, just pointing out that a youtube clip title proves nothing apart from your susceptibility to making unfounded assumptions.
