Is spotlighting a very common issue with the Sony HX750's? I would assume most of the satisfied people on this message board do not have spotlighting (to the degree I am having). If so, I will exchange it for a new model and see if it's any better.
I know exactly what you mean by wanting more bright and vivid settings but having to set your tv to a more dark setting.
My spotlighting may not be as bad as yours. When my screen goes black, the corners just look a little bit brighter than the rest. It doesn't really bother me too much..
But I understand because if you're shelling out a thousand bucks, you don't expect something like that..
I still tried my best to get rid of it. I don't have my Gamma go past +1 and I don't have my Backlight level go past +1 either.
The Black corrector can be helpful at times but it can also stunt the brightness. Especially with these settings.
I say don't mess too much with black corrector if you want more a more bright and vivid screen. Unless you've found a magical combo with the whites.
