[Still photos]


During the course of shooting the large and small databases, still photographs (2240x1680) were taken of the subjects at the time of filming. For the large database, there are two views - one with the subject standing side-on to the camera and one with the subject standing front-on. For the small database, there is also a picture of the subject's normal shoes (just in case it might be useful).

The large and small databases can be distinguished by their session numbers. Sessions 008 to 035 inclusive cover the large database and sessions 038 to 060 cover the small database.

There are also some stills of the lab setup (not properly sorted or labelled yet).

The digital camera used to take the stills was a Sony DSC-F505V.
