Is this the answer?
Just passed along to me is this new video analysis of the length of the object in the water, from Al.
Calculating Champ size based on triangulation of videographer location and reference points.
Frame 1022 used to establish creature size for all the 3 frames used in this calculation from Olsen Video.
++++++++ Below is my earlier posting with various images and videos to be used for comparison.
This cryptid (an unidentified animal) being called “Champ” on Eric Olsen’s intriguing footage is, well, how long? We don’t know yet?
Even though I’ve asked people to swim out to one or more of the buoys and measure them, no one has taken me up on my request. Hey, on those golf telecasts, they talk about having ways to measure, with lasers, how far the ball is from the cup. Why don’t cryptozoologists have a few of those?
Come on folks. Let’s join the 21st century here, and figure this one out. How big is this animate object that was captured as a digital image on Olsen’s phonecam on May 31, 2009?
Here is a brand new analysis of the Olsen footage, specifically of the wave disturbances as a way to try to figure out the length of the creature. It is from “Al.”
Bernard Heuvelmans’ Super-Otter (above) compared to images from Eric Olsen’s new footage (above the Super-Otter and below).
How big is this thing?
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
