So the DR correction is actually adjusting the tone curve, the same as the HTP in Canon's DSLR? I've used the HTP in my DSLR and really like it when needed. It seems that ofr the G15, it might br best just to keep in in "auto" most of the time, unless you know you're shooting a scene with flat lghting.
I experimented this morning with an indoor scene that included an area outside seen through my large living room window. I took 3 shots from exactly the same position. When I did a quick check of the blown highlights, the "auto" setting definately cleaned up some blown highlights when compared to having the DR turned off completely. But the 400% produced an even greater, and quite significant reduction of blown highlights.
Thanks for that answer, Steen!
