Stabilization

Just found two fascinating films. One is the most famous Bigfoot film ever taken. The other is the Zapruder film of the Kennedy assassination. What makes these fascinating is that someone stabilized the pictures by shifting the frames so that the background elements didn't shift around (like they would with someone with a handheld camera). The result is as clear an image we can get of what the scene would have looked like to a stable observer on the scene.

The stabilized Bigfoot film looks more like a man walking by in a gorilla suit then an actual wild animal.

The stabilized Zapruder film really conveys the shocking nature of the event (warning: not for the squeemish).

Btw, the Zapruder film has an artificial soundtrack added by the creator. I actually think he got the placement of the gunshots wrong, but I'm not up on my assassination facts enough to be sure.
