Great video!  Cool to see the coast of Lake Ontario too...I lived in Port Credit many years ago

Beautiful!  Take either one away and they'd both look real.  

Major effort, thanks for this!

Well done! It must have been challenging to line up the simulator flight perfectly in speed, heading and field-of-view with the real thing. 

What I notice is the obvious summer foliage in the sim... which can be forgiven of course... but the water is just super fake looking in the sim.  The colour is off, there's no detail or texture to it, it looks bad. The photogrammetry reconstruction is remarkable though.

man that looks great . the thing that bugs me sometimes is that there's probably people here that are willing to pause the video 59 times and find something that looks wrong in the FS2020 half of the clip .

looks really nice well done ..

Awesome video, Microsoft should pay you for the work you've done.  Labor of love I am sure but that surely was not easy to pull off and edit to boot.  Thank you for this video.

Fantastic and very convincing video!

I recommend it to everyone because is the best example I know of the incredible simulator FS2020 is.

Thanks for sharing

The flight model looks too twitchy in the real life simulator, whatever that is, as I have never actually heard of it before, so I will stick with MSFS thanks!  👍 🙂

In all seriousness though, sincere thanks for putting this together.  Hopefully Asobo can use this if they are watching, because, as virtual-chris said, the water tone needs some work.  It was the main difference for me when watching your video.  I actually thought the water was pretty good before I saw this.

If they can match the water colour more, which should not be too difficult to do, it would make it look so much closer.  I reckon there could be a freeware mod or aftermarket product soon for this - hopefully, unless Asobo can beat them to it.

I notice the stadium on the approach to downtown Toronto was quite different.  It was covered in real life, but with the red seating exposed in the sim.  With you living around Toronto (I presume), is this recent work that was done?

Also, I have been to Toronto many times - I really love the place.  Because of this, it was one of the first places I wanted to visit in the sim, and I found a scenery enhancement pack that was really good...

Did you use this in the sim?  

Thanks so much for your efforts  - outstanding work; I could watch it all day! 😁

Despite some of the subtle differences the sheer fact we are at a point where we’re comparing the real world with MSFS truly makes it a great time to be a part of this hobby.

Asobo deserve a lot of credit for the visual quality of the sim. An the best bit is it’s only going to improve.

An great video, thanks for sharing.
