Secrets of the Zapruder Film

Voluntary panning camera motion transitions indicated in first part of the Zapruder film

Zapruder appeared to be alternating between non-panning and panning of the camera in the early part of the film in order to keep the limo centered in the viewfinder while it was further up the street. This video is paused at the points of active transitions from panning to non-panning and back. A good way to see the panning motion differences is to look at a stationary landmark (like the Stemmons sign).
