Checked today what soft / hard is doing on my X20. SOFT pulls the histogram extremes towards the centre (both highlights and shadows). HARD does the opposite. SOFT did a nice job of improving skin tones in bright sunlight, and bringing colour / texture to the sky. On the shadows, it brightens them. I couldn't see the advantage of using HARD for either HLs or Shadows, but if I had a low contrast scene it might well be a different story.
