These pics do look good considering you can see daylight from windows nearby in the bezel.
Night shots are needed because IMO the blacks are not that impressive at all in these pics. there is a big diff where the screen meets the bezel. But to be fair, my 5020 looks like this when near a window with daylight.
And yes, it is quite odd that Cinema looks to be the brighter mode. This would be a first in my limited experience. And the yellow is more prevalent as Stin mentioned.
Most people will be very grateful for pics at night. I know for myself, the most important things I want to know/see are:
1. Whites and overall brightness. Like the white of the text in the score box. Is it brilliant white or dirty off white? Maybe provide a few different modes and discuss your feelings on the brightness and the effect it might have on blacks and whites and what not in the different modes.
2. A pic of black background against the black bezel would be awesome.
Please include modes and settings if you don't mind.
Maybe look to see if you notice any oddities regarding dark scenes where the pixels may go off in the larger dark areas.
As a side note. I have found pics to be misleading on whites in general and much more accurate with blacks. My pics of the A650 vs the 5020 were spot on regarding blacks and whites were misleading IMO. Whites looked much closer than they actually were IRL.
