Superb colors and low low grain. How I would love to see an uncompressed version of this. One can only imagine how good it would look.

MOONRAKER was the first 007 film I watched. i was 8 years old, I believe. It was awesome to me. Now I think it's laughable. But it has its moments.

Watch this on YouTube in 720p, not here, as it is squished.

That does look outstanding. Even in 720 the compression is quite ugly, though, so yes, only a 1080 upload could give one a better idea of the ultimate quality of the footage.
But it certainly is stable and sharp with lovely color.

I think we're entering a wonderful year for Super 8 film scanning. That does look amazing; almost TOO good.

Will,

My first thoughts, after the amazement, was: are we sure this is not 16....?

I thought the same thing. But it says 8mm, so.... 8mm it is.

Fantastic ciné document! The less grainy 8 mm stock those times was Kodachrome but skin tones and yellows on this filmation don´t seems Kodachrome, in my opinion. Thanks for sharing. CINEcerely, Ignacio
