Stromatopelma calceatum: Ventral Sexing

The lighting is horrible so I apologize, but is this at all a decent enough picture and a large enough specimen to determine the sex of this tarantula??
It's large enough to tell, just a fuzzy picture. Perhaps female, but I'm not confident
 
Yeahhh, i uploaded one that was not much, but a tad better. Looking at it in real life, i xan see what looks like an epigastric furrow, i could be wrong, which leads to a question that could be an obvious answer. Im just not possitive. Does a female spider always have an epegastric furrow or is it o ly once they mature?
 
It's visible before they're mature. So if you think you see one, then it very well could be female
