"Savage Pampas" released 19. December 2016 on German BluRay and 4K UltraHD
By Thomas Hauerslev
For the fans of "Savage  Pampas" here's finally the news you have been waiting for. On 19. December 2016, the new BluRay and 4K UltraHD disc of the classic MCS 70 Superpanorama western is finally available in stores. The new transfer was made directly from an original and very sharp vintage 70mm print, which was faded to the familiar red tones. Thanks to the talent of scan master Mr. Vincent Koch in Karlsruhe, Germany, the full color spectrum has been brought back in its full glory to be enjoyed by the fans.
I understand why everyone says it is "a must" in 70mm
By Ronan Nissenbaum
We went back up to the projection booth where the projectionist recognised us from the last time, and said we had been the last people up there. He was extremely nice and told us to pop back in the next time we were over, and we'll definitely be back over for Dunkirk and whatever other new 70mm prints are shown. I love film prints of all formats, but there's something so special about 70mm prints that really makes going to the cinema an event.
Thoughts about 120 fps / 4K / 3D
It does lend itself to certain genres of films, but I’m not sure which ones. It would be great for documentaries and concert films. Judging by the way the cheerleaders looked in the film, it might be great for erotica although it will reveal every pore and every flaw in an actor’s face. IMO, it would be terrible for fantasy films because it would reveal every flaw in makeup, masks, prothesises, set design, etc. I would like to see a film using the same process, but in 2D.

What 7OMM is to Johan Wolthuis
By Thomas Hauerslev
Johann Wolthuis has been crucially instrumental in reviving world wide interest in 70mm. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to say that there might not have been the same level of awareness and appreciation of the 70mm format without his tireless dedication, advocacy and enthusiasm, which goes back for over three decades. We who love 70mm and see it as the greatest and grandest medium for the moving image of them all, owe him a great deal. He speaks most eloquently for us all.
Ladies and Gentlemen, This is MAGI Cinema
By Thomas Hauerslev
MAGI is very high frame rate, five times faster than usual, 4K image resolution and 3D. Films presented in MAGI is referred to, by people whop have seen demonstrations, as being hyper-realistic, far brighter (up to 28 foot lamberts), sharper than anything seen previously, and in particular far better that any current 3D techniques. The screen simply disappears between the viewer and the action on the curved screen.

By Mike Coate

The film’s formal public world premiere was held at the Warner in London on October 15th, 1964.

I continue to be impressed by the dedication you have to the continuing wellbeing of 70mm. I would like you to have met my colleague and friend, the late Robert Gottschalk, founder and driving force of Panavision. He was of the unshakeable opinion that picture quality, real picture QUALITY, depended on a big piece of negative, the bigger the better.

All good wishes, Sir Sydney Samuelson, December 2009
