There's no mention of digital sensors or crop factors which is probably a good thing, since the video is already 18 minutes long.
Here's a list of films mentioned in the video (along with notable people / inventors / technologies). The films are all worth watching - many could be considered a 'must-see' for any film connoisseur.
Television vs. widescreen - Cinerama by Fred Waller (2.57 or 2.57:1 / 2.59 or 2.59:1 / 2.65 or 2.65:1 when cropped) - I have a whole blog post on Cinerama here. The movie 'This is Cinerama' (from 1952), 'The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm' (from 1962) and 'How the West Was Won' (from 1962).
The movie 'Shane' (from 1953) originally shot in Academy ratio (1.37 or 1.37:1) but cropped (to 1.66 or 1.66:1) and projected on a new 50 foot screen as opposed to the earlier 30 foot screen using Stereophonic sound. The cropping however increased film grain.
VistaVision (1.85 or 1.85:1) - the movie 'White Christmas' (from 1954), 'The Ten Commandments' (from 1956) - Alfred Hitchcock - 'To Catch a Thief' (from 1955), 'Vertigo' (from 1958) and 'North by Northwest' (from 1959).
Todd-AO by Mike Todd - 70mm film (2.20 or 2.20:1) - the movie 'Oklahoma' (from 1955), 'Around the World in 80 Days' (from 1956), 'South Pacific' (from 1958), 'The Sound of Music' (from 1965) and 'Patton' (from 1970) - Dimension 150.
Now you will hopefully better understand why movies and TV looks the way it does.
The two fregates F362 (Peter Willemoes) and F363 (Niels Juel) from the Royal Danish Navy sailed to a location northwest of Scotland to test the ESSM missiles onboard F362 along with its APAR radar that guides the missiles. ESSM is used for protection against attacking missiles and aircrafts.
The helicopter onboard F363 was used to scan the area for any unwanted 'onlookers' who might get too close to the test.
The hangar and helo deck onboard F362 was used for the launch of the target drones. F362 will be the first of the three Iver Huitfeldt class fregates to become fully operational.
New guns and helicopters are coming in the near future.
July 2013, I was invited along on the #CostaPhotoblogTour to visit the Norwegian Fjords aboard the Costa Luminosa. This week-long tour was arranged by Costa Cruise, VisitNorway and the Italian Institute of Photography - with the help of Ambito5 (Social Business Ideas).
Besides myself, there were 8 photobloggers from Italy, Spain, France and Germany.
There were guided excursions with bus and train from Flåm and Hellesylt (to Geiranger) which focused on the natural beauty of the fjords and mountains with several stops along the way. The other days were urban / cultural stops in Bergen, Stavanger and Oslo.
Day 1: Was spent at sea (Copenhagen to Flåm: 608 nautical miles) - getting to know each other - including a behind the scenes visit to areas normally off limits to guests (the busy galley seen below along with Vangsnes in the Sognefjord very early in the morning of day 2 on the way to Flåm).
Day 2: Excursion from Flåm by train and bus. The famous Flåm Railway took us from Flåm to Myrdal where we boarded another train to Voss. From there, we went by bus back to Flåm via Reppen, Vinje, Stalheim and Gudvangen with several stops along the way (photos below are the Flåm Railway, Tvindefossen waterfall and the view from Stalheim). We then sailed the 259 nautical miles to Hellesylt.
Day 3: Bus excursion from Hellesylt to Geiranger via places like Norangsdalen, Grodås, Stryn, Fosnes, Gamle Strynefjellsveg, Grotli and Dalsnibba with lots of stops along the way (photos below are our transport the Costa Luminosa in Hellesylt, Norangsdalen Valley, Stryne Elva river, view from Fosnes and Geiranger from above). We then sailed the 226 nautical miles from Geiranger to Bergen.
Day 4: Guided tour of Bergen with stops at the Bergenhus Fortress, Bryggen, the fish market and Mount Fløyen (photos below are Bryggen from the rear and the view from Mount Fløyen). We then sailed the 161 nautical miles to Stavanger.
Day 5: Walking Stavanger alone - mostly through the old part of Stavanger and around the harbour (photos below are the Costa Luminosa behind the old part of Stavanger and a supply ship in the harbour - Stavanger is Norway's oil capitol). We then sailed the 296 nautical miles to Oslo.
Day 6: A guided bus / walking excursion to the Vigeland Park and along the new harbour front. I then walked through the City Hall before returning to the ship (photos below are the monolith and mother with children sculptures at Vigeland Park, interior from the City Hall, the Oslo Opera, the harbour with the two towers of City Hall, the Oslo Fjord as seen from the ship, the pool area of the Costa Luminosa and lastly one from inside the Samsara Spa aboard the ship). We then sailed the 274 nautical miles back to Copenhagen.
Day 7: Early morning arrival in Copenhagen. A slow morning with breakfast onboard the ship before I disembarked and found my way back to Odense with a suitcase full of memories...
All photos are shot either with my Panasonic Lumix GH2 (with old Canon FD optics from the 70s and 80s) or with my iPhone 4S. The GH2 mostly shot 5 frame HDRs that have been merged with Photomatix while the iPhone shot HDRs with the proHDR app. Most images have been edited in Photoshop with the LucisArt and Nik Collection plug-ins.
Hurtigruten is a ferry route operating along the Norwegian coast from Bergen to Kirkenes since 1893 - a return trip takes 12 days. Ferries depart Bergen daily for the 1.800 km / 1.100 mile long journey north.
In 2011, the trip from Bergen and north to Kirkenes was broadcast live on NRK - 24 hours a day, 6 days in a row onboard the 'Nordnorge'. This documentary uses footage from that broadcast.
