    Disneyland 1956 - HD footage

    Some pretty amazing 16mm home movie clips of Disneyland from 1956, captured in high definition.

    wow good stuff. the 16mm is surprisingly well preserved and it's such a beautiful transfer.

    and is it only me, but after watching those two videos, i'm starting to feel that today's disneyland is quite heavily cluttered...

    With that music playing did it fell like a certain amount of innocence was being viewed in those films?

    That was...just amazing. The park was so sparse when it first opened, it's crazy and awesome. Jungle Cruise actually looks REALLY cool too. Sucks that it's lasted this long but parts of it haven't or are still there but look cheap/falling apart.

    Unbelievable video. Nice job making this film look almost HD. I am a fan of HD video content. I love recording stuff in HD with my canon HV30 and my HD digital camera.

    Almost HD? It is HD. He said its a 1080P transfer. That 16mm film could blow away 1080P if wants to. You just need the right scanner. Im sure you could squeeze 4K out of it. 4k being 4096 1714 in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio.
    You can never run out of imagination. The more you use, the more you gain.

    Re: Disneyland 1956 - HD footage

    I have home movies my Dad took on July 18, 1955 when our family first went to Disneyland. I got them transferred to VHS a long time ago. I have no idea where to go or how to transfer them to DVD much less get it on YouTube (or some other forum). We also have movies my brother shot in 1959 of the Matterhorn, the skyway, and the Sub ride.

    I haven't watched these HD movies yet but will soon.

    That's pretty cool. What hits me is that the Disneyland we see in that video was so sparse in mature vegetation! I don't think the park is any more "cluttered" now...it's just greener and more landscaped.
