And those low APL scenes, what's it like when you eyeball it Zombie - does it look better or is it simply a case of a reduced black floor?
that is the limit, I am paused on a black field in that photo. My guess would be ~ 4 clicks below the lowest manual setting. If you watch the few fade to black scenes in Oblivion, the iris starts closing nearly at the middle of the black field but then pops back open since the transition occurs too fast. There aren't too many scenario's where I can get the iris to drop to such a small aperture.
jon - you will likely have to see this for yourself, I think opinions will be all over the place as is typical while discussing any DI. I am recommending folks set the iris to 2, there is potential to crush blacks in the 1st setting. The iris position does not change going between these modes, it appears the dynamic gamma is working a little too aggressive. At first glance it looks good, but then you realize shadow detail disappears when it kicks in.
confirmed, the gamma adjustments are gone. thankfully this one I have here is tracking well with greyscale, but that was a great way to tweak individual colors @ 5-25 IRE.
In general, I like the DI so far, they should have done this years ago when the RS40 was released.
