The way I look at it is that -2 of highlight preservation preserves the least amount of highlights, 0 a medium amount and +2 the maximum amount. Likewise for the shadows. So, the neutral setting would indeed be -2. As 'neutral' as the engine allows, anyway. If you look at the tone curves, I can see though where the notion of positive and negative comes from.

Sorry, but ...you are wrong see below the page DR of DPR review :

Using -2 -2 is the blue curve

+2 +2 is the yellow brown curve

0 0 is the standard tonal curve

Cheers

Robert
