ep 8, 0:35:15 Foliage is a good place to check for details.
ep 8, 0:38:36 Beautiful, but check the shadow areas too.
ep 8, 0:41:07 A dark scene. Can you see into the shadows?
ep 9, 0:51:49 Full of mosquito noise, but it moves so fast that you never notice.

A couple of stitched images. Not done very well -- you can see the stitched lines.

Not including the stitched lines, you can see horizontal lines in the smooth areas. (This happens sometimes; check clear areas in other frames)
