Forensic Imaging and Comparison Debate Centers on Expertise of Objects in the Image

A lawyer in the UK takes on an important aspect of forensics. The discussion is a bit  nebulous, and focuses on the topic of people identifying objects and people captured on digital media. I suppose old fashioned crime scene photography is a precursor to some of this, although the author doesn’t bring it into the discussion.   He does mention “artefacts” once. He also takes the Forensic Regulator to task for “overreaching.” I’d prefer a POV that emphasizes more collaboration since he does admit that some experts’ opinions “have been in error.”
