He said old film, not cell phone pictures.
Local police are glad to get our security system's recorded film and blow up and enhance the faces and make arrests which the police department has done on nearly a dozen occasions. Assuming the police are limited to looking at cell phone pictures is naive. Equally, stating there is no software available to enhance old film. My Pinnacle studio 9 enhances all my old vhs home/family films to DVD quality in the click of a few buttons. What you have stated so far is FUD.
