Missed California's natural beauty

"This video glossed over much of California's natural beauty and
instead focused on buildings, freeways, and football stadiums.
They gave the impression of showing California region by region,
but in reality they jumped back and forth, going from the south
coast to the central coast, then back south again. Many of the
pictures were unlabeled; we eventually decided that they really
didn't know what they had taken pictures of!
If you want to look at cities, freeways, and football stadiums
for an hour, this video is for you. If you want to see an hour
filled with California's majestic natural beauty, you'll be

"There is a problem with the DVD, it freezes up right in the middle of the documentary."
Great Content, Poor Video Quality

"This is a standard-definition version of material originally shot in high definition. When seen in high-def, the vistas and scenery are breathtaking, so this standard-def version is very disappointing.
Time for the releasing company to insist on a new, high-def transfer from the original material."
An excellent aerial special interest film

"Over California, as well as the entire "over" various other States series of aerial documentaries are breath-takingly excusite. However, once you have seen any of these series in the orignal High Definition format, even a pristine DVD rendition is a bit of a let-down. In any event, it is still a worthwhile purchase. I can't wait for the arival of the entire series on the High Definition format (as soon as a format finally arrives). Having a HD-Recorder and capturing any of these series of aerial films via HD satellite or HD-cable is the ultimate way to go for now."
