Yes, the getty images are definitely out of sequence, and by a long ways too!
I am of the opinion that there are a whole lot of frames missing (upwards of 200-300). The basis for this is, initial reports indicated that the
photographer, now confirmed as a Denver Post photographer, had her camera set to 10 frames per second. This would be unusual, especially for a
journalist (who carries gobs of memory). Real-time frame rates are 60 frames per second.
Two days ago, I estimated that there were about 3-4 frames missing, based on the stated 10 fps. In retrospect, that estimate was way low. Since
then, we've seen some of the missing frames show up (mysteriously). However, what I see in those frames doesn't compute to fluid motion, or a natural
sequence of frame rates. This leads me to believe the photographer's camera was actually set to a higher frame rate of 30 fps (a more standard
setting) or even 60 fps. At 60 fps there would be hundreds of missing frames.
ETA - Even at 10 frames per second there would be 7-8 frames of the drawing sequence, not just one. A really fast pistol draw is somewhere in the 0.7
- 1.0 sec. range. Sure some of the super-fast quick-draw competition guys can draw faster, but this guy wasn't one of them. So there should be a
number of pictures of the shooter grabbing the victim, and a number of pictures of what happened after the slap. These are all still missing...again,
even giving the benefit of the doubt of accepting 10 fps.
