Thanks for all the feedback guys.
It surely would be nice to cap it on a high end player, maybe use mine and Mallwalker's copy for even better results. But I'm not sure if I would go through the trouble and send my copy to someone who suddenly turns up on these boards and saying that he owns a XO-player and then disappear. ;)
This does look funky. :) Colors look nice. So what's the verdict? Is this closer how SW should look like colorwise? It's interesting that this seems to be only(?) release with colors like this.
If you mean compared to GOUT, sometimes it is closer, sometimes it is not. There is a green/yellow tint on it, and I would say that the original film was more saturated in certain parts, contrast and colors are also less consistent compared to GOUT, it also have the Jawa canyon in bright day-light but with a little color correction you could make something nice with this LD.
Why not check it out, there aren't that many DVNR-free transfers of Star Wars out there. Just lower your expectations, as it is only a LD-transfer. But for now, that is the resolution we're stuck in.
