Whoah. It went down to P750? d**n, I missed it.
I think the BBC one (R1, R3 available) is Attenborough while the Discovery version (R1 only) is Weaver.
good thing i read this, i thought i made a mistake. David Attenborough and Kenneth Branaugh (Walking with Dinosaurs) are the best narrators employed the BBC.
His other series even have bloopers on them like when they can't perfect a shot because the animal subject kept on moving. I don't know if this series have that.
hows does the blu-ray compare to this? layo ba?
We are still in Disc 1 and my kids are asking why the visible pixellations especially in dark shots. I got the R3 version and m projecting this in a PJ. To control the pixellations, i just adjust the size and it helps a bit.
hmmmm... thanks for the inputs/reviews.its still on sale anyway at P750.im thinking... and thinking...
thanks for the info! will get the bluray! hehehe...
Where did you see this on sale?
Dropped by M1 Greenbelt yesterday and this boxed set on sale (again) at P750
I was disappointed with the picture quality.. its grainy and pixellations are noticeable... also the sound is parang bitin.. I have to adjust the volume level to appreciate.. Ewan ko kasi parang nanibago ako when a friend lend me his BBC's Earth (Narrated by Patrick Stewart), mas maganda ang SQ and PQ, considering its only a P*dvd copied from bluray daw. Advice lang sa mga nagtatanong if bluray or dvd and bibilhin, mag blu-ray version na lang kayo...
From DVD Talk review of the DVD release:"Presented in its original 1.78:1 aspect ratio, Planet Earth has been enhanced for widescreen displays. The color palette is bold and black levels are solid, but the overall image quality is quite lacking in certain respects. Digital combing is easily spotted during many fast-paced sequences , while pixellation, compression artifacts and edge enhancement are most noticeable during crowded compositions. Planet Earth obviously involved a great deal of time and effort to assemble, which makes these digital blemishes all the more frustrating. One can only assume that the HD-DVD and Blu-ray releases are substantially crisper and more detailed, because what's here almost ruins the entire production. In an otherwise well-rounded release, this remains the largest disappointment by far.It's not often that nature documentaries obtain widespread public attention, but Planet Earth astounds audiences with spectacular sights and an amazing atmosphere. This 11-part series dissects areas of our planet seldom seen in such detail, highlighting countless new species and their curious behavioral patterns...but it's not just educational, it's supremely entertaining. BBC's DVD package, while sadly lacking in the visual department, delivers an exceptional audio presentation and an assortment of valuable extras. Though it's not polished enough to earn a higher rating, Planet Earth should still be considered a worthwhile purchase that the whole family will enjoy. Videophiles should certainly opt for the high-def versions, but most everyone else should still consider this release Recommended. The material's simply too good to ignore."From DVDTalk Bluray review:"These discs were mastered in 1080p and the image looks simply amazing. If you want to show some guests just why you spent all of that money on a Blu-ray player and HD display, just throw this puppy in and watch their eyes pop out. The level of detail is excellent, with individual drops of water being easy to discern when a whale exhales from its blow-hole. The colors are also stunning; they are bright, solid, and just pop off the screen. From the radiance of an endless field of wild flowers to the bright feathers of the Bird of Paradise, this set really brings forth all of the hues in glorious brilliance. Likewise the undersea shots and low light images (such as winter in the Antarctic) are clear and detailed with a wide range of gray tones.The only problem I could find was a very slight amount of posterization in some of the low light sequences, but this was very minor and I doubt that many people would even notice it if they weren't specifically looking for it. It's almost not worth mentioning. Other digital defects, mosquito noise, aliasing, and macro blocking are not a concern what so ever. This is an excellent looking set that is sure to please the most discriminating viewers. "Reviews from DVDTalk.com
