This review is from: Out of Africa [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This Blu Ray sports a very outdated HD transfer that is poor for today's standards. Digital sharpening and grain reduction artifacts are all over the place. Film look is not available here. You might like it if you watch on smaller TVs from a safe distance (where you don't see 1080p detail in the first place). Don't try to project it on a screen or go to close on a big monitor. It miserably falls apart.

I fully agree with this review. Wen projected on a big screen, especially the wide shots look blurry - no details in the background. Which is a shame, because the wide shots of the African landscape is for me part of the beauty of this movie.

Note to Amazon: This review doesn't belong with this [digibook] edition, which is a restoration.
However, thanks for the warning, I'll remove it from the Basket and pre order:
.Out of Africa - Limited Edition Digibook [Blu-ray] . Check reviews elsewhere, sounds to me like the business.

I have viewed my new digibook version on my 32" LED TV and I cannot fault the sound or picture quality.Out of Africa - Limited Edition Digibook [Blu-ray]

The new Blu Ray (from end of 2012) has a pretty good transfer and is not to be confused with the first Blu Ray which looks atrocious.

That was my understanding too.

Do you have the new 2012 digi-book edition? I do and It's exactly the same disc and same master used in the previous UK release.
