Woman captures 'ghostly figure' on CCTV

CCTV footage recorded on a quiet street shows what one woman has described as an 'otherworldly figure'.
Cambridgeshire resident Rachel Jones first spotted something unusual after a strange noise outside on the evening of March 26th prompted her to check over her security footage.

What she saw on the recording left her unnerved and perplexed in equal measure.

"I was at home sitting on my bed and I heard a noise outside so I quickly picked up my phone and turned the camera on and was shocked by what appeared," she said.
"I believe I can see a ghostly figure come out of the window with a light and then it walks down the path and past the car."

"I was completely astonished when I saw the recording that it picked up what I saw, I was in disbelief."

"I have watched it so many times and can't come up with any explanation."

While there certainly does appear to be something unusual going on in the video, there is a strong possibility that the 'ghost' could simply be a technical glitch with the CCTV.

You can check out the footage for yourself below.

It's really interesting! But honestly it just looks like some type of error in the camera causing a distortion.

Sorry, but I find it seriously underwhelming...  Almost all cameras of this type use jpeg compression, which essentially means that it uses various techniques to compress/shrink the file size, and that process compromises the quality.  It does this by averaging the content of 8x8 pixel blocks, and also trying to reuse the same blocks when they roughly match a different part of the image. To be particular, if the image shows a moving object that is very close in color/brightness level to the background, it will tend to be 'blended' in to that background, by the jpeg process re-using similar 8x8...

I have no idea about video technology but it does appear to glitched out at 20:10:29, so I would say glitchy footage.

I remember back int he day when YouTube videos were showing better lit examples of bad jpeg compression garbling faces to say the people in video are Reptilian shape shifters. Frick, they're still doing it!

Majority of those cameras - whoever sells them - is produced for profit, not for quality. Many errors in that equipment. A lot of skipped frames and 'person with (flashlight?) part' surely points out this problem. After all who would pay 20 or 30k for such system today. Even when the price was as high as that (i worked in security installations company when it was very profitable) the equipment was mostly poor quality and it's still technically hard to achieve both quality and 'endurance' even today. At least it is for average sums of money.

I see a person with a torch. For some reason the “ film” has rendered it invisible?
