Stop with the "BlobSquatches" Already

Why can't someone capture a clear, in focus and defined photograph of a Bigfoot. The closest thing we have to footage of an alleged actual Bigfoot is the Patterson-Gimlin film.


Why hasn't anyone else been able to get a good photo and what's with all of the "blobsquatch" pictures plastered all over the internet? I don't know about you but I'm pretty much fed up with some of these folks putting up photos that purport to show "something".


These folks need a reality check for sure.


In this day and age, there is no reason that we should be subjected to the type of poor quality images that are being presented as evidence..........or is there?


Actually, What I have found is that most "Bigfoot Hunters" are NOT using equipment that is on par with MOST wildlife photographers.


Why?


Most probably, the price of the equipment required for clear, sharp images at great distances.
First of all, you need to start with a good base camera body, Nikon is great but Canon seems to offer more versatility in lenses and lenses are the key. A good 500mm lense will cost you about $1500.00 US. Every circumstance or potential encounter will require adjustments in your camera equipment and you have to be able to "go with the flow". Will you ever need a 500mm lense? Probably not, unless you're photographing a tick eating dinner from a football field away, but you do need to invest in a variety of lenses and have them available.


I won't even go into nightime photography, don't do it because it's a waste of time.


B&H has an excellent selection for most, if not all applications:


Don't get me started on "trailcams".

So, STOP WITH THE BLOBSQUATCHES ALREADY and get some serious gear--If you're a serious Bigfoot Hunter.

Amen! Serious research requires serious gear. Hell, standardizing methods and equiptment would be a good angle for writing a grant to get the money to do this sort of work properly.

There should be standards for photography, evidence collection, tracking and everything involved with this research. The problem with establishing these criteria is ego. I'm afraid that every group thinks that their "way" is the best and they tend to secret the "techniques". Imagine if crime taskforces operated this way. Hell, they'd never get anywhere. It's time to lose the egos and get on with the serious research and the sharing of information.
