Thanks for the link Richie,
Looks like they were copying negatives of the N.C. taken from the water as well as negatives taken from the Walrus.

Watching that NZ television report (love that accent) has me more hopeful that there IS something worth finding on these images, based on the resolution Jeff Glickman was able to demonstrate with just one frame that showed the Norwich City.

The close up of the Norwich City was awesome.  Surely if there's something to be seen it will be seen?

What would you most like to see in these photo's? ( besides Nessie and any relatives on the reef)

My personal hope is for fire features at the 7 site, some evidence of Camp Zero....

Arg, every time I try to view that video I get a message telling me it is not available.  Why oh why am I being punished?   ???

Seriously though, is it my browser or something?

I just tried the link and it works for me on IE9.  I guess your browser is punishing you :)

While we can all hope for a magic "gotcha" image of something more conclusive, I'm hoping we will at least have indicators of new places to look for further archeology examinations.  Perhaps remains of Lambrecht's "signs of recent habitation", or indicators of interim camps prior to the seven site.  IMO; if the seven site was the final location of our intrepid aviatrix, I imagine there must have been other interim sites along the way.  The distance from our theoretical camp zero (near the landing site) to the seven site just seems a bit far to make in one jump.

I agree that a conclusive image of anything is unlikely, likely just more tantalizing things to be looked for in the next expedition.  In the long term these photos might best function as a sort of baseline for the state of Niku pre-colonist, pre-coast guard. Up until now its been hard to say definitely any feature on Niku was definitely the same as when AE and FN  had been there, debunkers could attribute everything to those who arrived in the 1940's,  these photos should allow clarification of what was and wasn't there for the larger features/items.
