But surely there is lot of new imagery. You only have to look at
YouTube to see that it's there.

It seems to me that the problem remains the same as it always
was (albeit with an even more frustrating additional problem,
see below): A lot of what people record is distant, blurred, and
confusing.

I mentioned a frustrating additional problem and this is the
possibility of very high quality digital manipulation. Hoaxing
of photos and movies has always happened but there are now
widely available techniques and tools which take it to a new
level. Check out the work of TheFakingHoaxer at
http://www.youtube.com/user/TheFakingHoaxer to see what can be
done by someone with skill. In short, even there was a fantastic
new sighting filmed by someone, we might have a very difficult
time knowing if it was real or not.

In summary, I think modern technology and cameras everywhere
increase the chance of a sighting of 'something' being recorded
but they also increase the mess that we have to search through
and they hugely increase the chances of fakes or hoaxes being
successful.

The truth is still out there but will be know it if and when we
see it?
