For that reason i was asking if somebody has used this feature,because i didn't see any side effect.
I was not able to detect ANY downside whatsoever by using the panel shift function, using either test patterns or real world material. And they make it easy to do this because as you know you can toggle panel shift on and off easily (as opposed to having to back out your settings to get back to 0).
I do not know how they pull this off. Mark H has said for years that the approach used by Sony lowers resolution. Maybe it does, I do not know. But if it does it certainly imperceptible, at least in the small amounts I am using.
What can be easily perceived is the difference between my corrected convergence and the OOTB setting. I can put up a single pixel grid and from a normal seating distance flip back and forth between panel shifted and Off. And as I do I can see the grid turn from a somewhat reddish glow to solid white. It is rather striking. So my philosophy is that if I can see an obvious benefit, but cannot see any downside whatsoever, I'm using it!
Although I should also add that with real world material I can't see any improvement in focus or otherwise when I flip back and forth with the panel shift on or off either.
I do not know if the same applies to the zone level controls, but I assume it works the same. Afterall electronic shift is electronic shift. I do recall, however, there is some mention of it in the user manual for the VW95 - it says something about using too much of it may reduce the resolution, or something like that. I do not recall if it is specific to the zone control or the overall shift.
