Overall, a dark film, with pictures quite obscure (but see Online Resources at the manuscript description). Some letters "shiny" (perhaps from bad processing), but still mostly legible. The (Eusebian) charts at the beginning are difficult to make out. Most of the body of the text is quite clear, despite the "lighting", and where it is not it should be enough to confirm or refute an edition. There are a few exceptions though, such as part of 11v. Most headings and marginalia legible, but there are again some exceptions (such as the heading on 36r).
