    They should be 4:3. At least thats the screen shape at the Bradford Imax. I saw 'Grand Canyon' there, many years ago, and it filled the 'square' screen.

    I've seen these DVDs around but never on screen. Are they documentaries? I guess on the IMAX they must look superb, but what about on an HCPC?

    Anybody received and watched them yet?

    Care to comment?

    Intrigued as to whether they'd be any good?

    I went a bit mad and ordered 10 of them :blush: . Shipping for 10 according to their site is $40 or £15.50 just to give some idea. I hope customs don't sting me for more as my total purchase cost is currently running at around £43.25... Superb.

    I'm glad I've stuck with my 6' x 6' screen, it should show these disks off nicely.

    Clint.

    Watched the Barrier Reef one last night on the projector; the footage is fantastic but either I was doing something wrong or the PQ is bloody awful! Loads of jaggies..........I was watching it at 720p through the yamakawa to a HS10.

    Anybody else find this, not too dissapointed though as they were a present for the little lady and she loves the colours!!

    Cheers all

    I watched the Rainforest one last night and thought the transfer looked a bit muted and soft, but for the price I'm not going to complain. Wouldn't have wanted to pay full price but at this price they're a steal.
    Got the Lost Worlds and Ancient Egypt ones to go through still.

    A bit O/T but if you are into space exploration I can recommend IMAX 'The Dream Is Alive'. Not only are the close up launch scenes & views of earth from space fantastic, but it reminds me of holidays in Florida as it's one of the films they show at Kennedy Space centre.
