Nice Scenery, but boring

by Happy Shopper on 2/14/2011

I purchased this 4 disc set for the Mt. Rainier pictures, so the fact that the other 3 discs weren't interesting didn't bother me much. If you like watching PBS shows, then you might be interested in the Mt. Rainier video. The Ireland video and the beach and flower video are really boring. If you like watching the yule log video at Xmas, then you may like these videos. Otherwise, I'd think twice about buying them. Read More

Two Discs are Excellent, but the Others are POOR

by Jim on 2/15/2011

At the time this review was written, the HD Landscapes Collection had a Buy.com sales rank of #4, so there should be many purchasers that will be disappointed. Unfortunately, you can’t really determine what you will get from the descriptions on the Web page. The Mount Rainier and Over Ireland discs are excellent (4+ Stars) and the other two discs (Flowers and Beaches) SHOULD be good too, based on the subject matter. Both of these discs consist of two locations (e.g. beaches) with five different views for about 6 minutes each. During this time, the camera is “locked-down” and does not move… the only (minimal) movement is when leaves/flowers are blown by the wind, ocean waves, etc. In default mode, the scenes are static, with background sounds that appear to be just “open-mike” and NO soothing music as stated in the description. It turns out that there IS music available, but there is no menu on the disc or instructions on the box to tell you how to get the music to play. My player has a “pop-up menu” button that will bring up a screen menu that allows section of the two music sound tracks instead of the background sounds. However, even with the music on, these two discs are very boring and several of the subjects are poorly selected and photographed. However, purchasing this set would not be a total loss, because the Over Ireland and Mount Rainier discs are excellent and would cost more than the collection if purchased individually. Note: The four discs are shipped in one hard plastic case on a single spindle – three of the discs in my shipment had come loose and were banging around inside the case; luckily the protective coating on the Blu-ray disc surfaces had not been damaged, but this type of packaging invites damage.
