That's interesting. I'm curious what the difference is in HDR and X-Tended HDR and PRO-HDR. Honestly, it's probably better to wait while Sony and the other OEMs get their firmware and hardware...

I'm still having firmware issues. Specifically, the 16-235 Limited Range versus 0-255 Full Range black to white. I'm hoping someone else in this thread can confirm what I'm seeing.
