*Amateur film


A nice DVD from Cologne 2005. It covers almost the complete concert. Only the last minute of Paul Rodger's song All Right Now is missing. The picture quality itself is really very good, but some parts are really shaky and far from stable when it will get worse. The taper had to film quite far away from the stage. Most of the time it is filmed right to the stage and other shots are taken from the two big video screens. It is still a nice live document to have. Also the sound quality is good and quite stable. The setlist was usual with no surprises. A nice performance of Brian during Can't Get Enough Of Your Love. The entire cast of the musical ''We Will Rock You'' came on stage during the last two songs in the encore. No copy errors. Not sourced from VCD/SVCD.

The concert was filmed with a digital camcorder Sony DCR H17E. The tapes were recorded onto the PC with a firewire cable and then the files were rendered with ULead Video Studio. The authoring was done with TMPG DVD author.
