Not bad for the price.

"I managed to get my copy for $9.99. It was filmed in 1994. Apparently the recording is in 1080i although that means nothing to me because my flatscreen is 720p. It's encoded in MPEG-2 but they maxed out the bitrate and it looks pretty darn good. For the price, it's a really neat demo with the only con being the elevator music."

"I have the Blu-ray Washington the Beautiful in High Definition and it is fantastic. So I was excited to purchase Over California. NO comparison! Over California was filmed in the early 90's, poor quality and very dated"
Not great quality

"Regardless of the price paid, I expect decent quality in a DVD advertised as Blu-ray. Not only was the disc not in 1080p, but the quality of the picture was very poor in several spots, with artifacts and drop-outs. The film is at least a decade old - they show the Raiders football team in the L.A. Coliseum - they moved back to Oakland in 1995! Its obvious the production was not filmed with high-definition cameras, but was remastered to a higher pixel count without any increase in quality.
I wasn't that thrilled with the scenic production either. Far too much time spent circling skyscrapers and not enough over other points of interest. The tour of San Diego was especially cheap and covered only the harbor area."
Not all it could be

"Not a bad doc but also certainly not excellent. Lots of great helicopter shots not particularly well organized. Good music/fairly well edited good narator."
