Just to further comment on this problem. After seeing the HW30 and the 95, I would actually pick the 30 vs the 95 due to this sporadic problem of bright corners. I think that the 95 will have little...

Being "that friend", and following our conversation it's important to say that the 95 as the HW30 shine when it comes to bright scenes a la chase scene in Casino Royal.
