Original news

It goes on a regular cruise from Bergen to Kirkenes (six days) and back to Bergen again (five days), with several stops along the way. It is impossible for us to know exactly where the ship was, specially with an imprecise date. The photo shows a strange phenomenon, not seen at the time, looking a little “rocket”-like. We had the negative investigated, and it was soon obvious that there was a flaw on the film itself.

Defects in old photos

There are a number of defects specific to film images. They are connected with the peculiarities of the film and principle photo.

The film in essence is a strip of transparent synthetic plastic, supported on her a photosensitive layer of chemical substances that can alter its transparency or properties under the action of light.

Reflections in the lens from strong light source

The lens consists of the lens consists of a set of lenses (some lenses of mirrors), designed for mutual compensation of aberrations and collected into a single system.

From the backlight (bright light sources behind the subject or beside him), caught in the frame or outside the frame boundary are formed parasitic pureraria from internal lens elements, called glare (or in slang "hares").


Versions testing, their confirmation or refutation. Additional information, notes during the study of materials

The object appearance more characteristic of a highlight than to defect in the film.
