    The background in Couch enlarged. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zqjst5lW-cXqBSG6Ty4vp6AJkyyY2e2G/view?usp=sharing If you look closely at the column in the background (just after Beatrice Hester?? bends over and then stands up) you'll see Charles Hester?? peek out from behind it. Their is another woman(I believe I have found her earlier in Wiegman) that is climbing up the stairs moving from left to right through Couch's LOS onto Beatrice. She is a key in letting us know that their was a time gap between the end of Bell(Wiegman rising) and the beginning of Couch. The last person, whose head pops up above the wall end is one of the high school boys, seen earlier at the end of the Bell where Wiegman begins to rise. Don't forget Wiegman who has just risen from beneath the RL Thornton sign running from right to left. Now all you have to do is plot the beginning of Bell with Z and this will give you the approx time of when Bell started filming after the z313 headshot and count from there. Pascall and Bell provided another sync point. Of course, I've included the frame count and since Couch was shot at 24fps and the others at 18.3, use some math to figure it out with what's been provided. It's fairly close to this: The time it takes for Wiegman panning back to the TSBD after the head shot, until the Hester sync = 21seconds. Bell films Wiegman filming the Hesters. The sync point between Bell and Wiegman is Hester stepping up onto the Colonade. Bell continuously films afterwards for 1.3 seconds and picks up Wiegman starting to rise for his run down the knoll.

  4. Jim, The frames immediately preceed the wallet video. I assume Ryland was the photographer on the scene when the video was taken. It's his voice on the wallet video clip.
  5. It appears as if the "official story" had already been passed along to the reporter. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1q3zgLFHSGytSONPW7kW07qn_FmByJDwq/view?usp=sharing

    Another close syncing moment:

    One reason might be the Z film was enlarged and then cropped. Then again, another might be the Newmans weren't tall enough, just like my brother. btw, he was 5'9" tall.

    You haven't supplied a common occurance among two films for any type of syncing. Here's Bell for you. Now compare that with the Couch clip I just supplied, towards the end, and you'll see all the same players that are in Bell. You even get to see the cycle cop at the lamp-post take off toward his motorcycle, just as we see him in Bell. Who's that near the Newman's, looks like Altgen's to me. Who's that with the hat on, looks like Wiegman to me. So Wiegman and Altgens arrive at the Newmans at approx the same point in time. Anyone care to look at Couch and help John understand this concept??????

    Altgen's 6 taken at approx z255 = 486-255 = 231/18.3 = 12.62sec while the Wiegman/Bell sync at least 22sec after the headshot, followed by Couch does not = Altgens crossing the street a few seconds after Altgens 6? Altgens is seen(in Couch) crossing the street as Wiegman makes his run down the knoll. Look closely down the street toward the lightpost. Guess who that is crossing? https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwrExtVD005OS3QxMXNBemRkSGs/view?usp=sharing

    That's because the previous inset shows the same cycle cop in Couch, after he somewhat traverses the camera cars in Couch. This occurs while Wiegman (a camera car photographer shown in Couch) runs down the slope.

    Trying to Understand this Bronson Frame

    No, the camera cars have not left the area. They are approaching Wiegman (red box) who films the inset(lower right corner). I suggest watching the Couch film which includes Wiegman's partial run down the grassy knoll if you want to see the other camera cars(and cycle cop movement) as they start/move down Elm before Wiegman films the inset.
  13. Gene, Z or whomever started walking toward the "TSBD/his office" quite possibly landed in the pergola first. I'm not saying these are the same two people either. Either way, this creates a problem for Zapruder's spoken actions. Z's actually in another film that day, I'll discuss that later.

    Adam, Start a new topic named "Conversions" or something like that. Then repost your previous response and I will reply. I believe the answer you are seeking may not be indicative of the figures you are providing. Or, I'm reading your question incorrectly. Let's make sure before we go on. Chris

    Until you show us, I'll leave the rest of the forum with Hester (by himself) entering the colannade. If he's difficult to find, just look to the top of the lightpost that the cop is standing next to. The same cop we see in Couch who has not left either when we initially see him. You can also see lonely Beatrice Hester starting to rise. I'm on to other items of more interest.

    There are two films that show Charles Hester(by himself) run into the colannade. Bell and Wiegman. That is your sync point. Once you confirm you see Charles Hester run into the colannade in Bell, you can then work forwards and backwards in terms of time. It's the best time syncing available, as there are no other common events that occur within these films which enable a sync. If somebody comes up with one, I'm all ears. The time it takes for Wiegman panning back to the TSBD after the head shot, until the Hester sync = 21seconds. Bell films Wiegman filming the Hesters. The sync point between Bell and Wiegman is Hester stepping up onto the Colonade. Bell continuously films afterwards for 1.3 seconds and picks up Wiegman starting to rise for his run down the knoll. Gerda’s dual-sync of Couch/Darnell shows both Wiegman and Baker in there respective runs. There is 3.5 seconds of missing footage from the Wiegman sequence. Take those 3.5 seconds and apply that to Wiegman after we see him start to rise in Bell and to Baker before we see him in Gerda’s dual-sync. Baker’s run to the curb equals 4 seconds. This total = approx 29.8 seconds. Choose what you may in terms of missing time between Wiegman's film stop(after filming Charles Hesters in the colannade) and Couch's start.

    After what? Hopefully you can see Mr. Hester in Bell at the colannade. Wiegmans the guy in Bell, near the steps starting to rise. What is not known is the time it takes Wiegman to rise after filming the Hesters to where we see him running in Couch from behind the RL Thorton sign Add in whatever amount of time you think it takes for Charles Hester to return back to his wife after Wiegman stops filming and begins his sprint down the knoll. If your Couch frame is before Bell, where are Z and Sitz in Couch? Who do you think is running down the knoll in Couch, eventually filming the Newman's, then turning to the street and filming the motorcade approaching? The same person appearing in Rickersby near the lamp-post (previously supplied). That's Wiegman. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1RnuKN83jMGuIHMFbd4boTdvmPO2v_Jw1/view?usp=sharing

    All the main players are there from your Couch frame. Just look closely. Bell segment occurs before your Couch frame is shot. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1g8uOakjfdeQ91uRuFE6fWX7gG_pdtwKB/view?usp=sharing

    Bart, That is not Wiegman with which you have the red arrow pointing towards, near the Stemmons sign. Wiegman is on his run down the knoll and is just to the left of the RL Thorton sign. John, Wiegman is exactly where his film says he is. After he films the Newmans, he turns towards the street and films the approaching motorcade. I suggest looking for my previous sync posting using Bell and Wiegman as the key films for a common event. We've been through this before.

    By the time Weigman's car gets to the designated lane marker, they are through the Elm St turn. (See previous plat plotting) The side of Wieigman's car appears in his film footage as he is leaving it. How else would someone have video footage from above the car they were riding in? You'll have to prove he wasn't in Camera Car #1 and that is another persons video footage.
