A580 DRO / DRO+ / Advanced DRO ..?

Hi all,

I'm a bit confused about the DRO implementation in my new A580. As I understand it, on the older cameras like the A700, there were two different types of DRO. There was the "regular DRO", which was basically a shadow/highlight type of adjustment, and then there was the "advanced stuff", or DRO+ or whatever it was called, which was much more complicated and used technology licensed from Iridix.

On my A580 I don't seem to be able to select between these types of DRO adjustments. I have only "levels" ranging from 1 to 5 to select from.

Am I correct in assuming that the A580 always applies the advanced form of DRO, and that the levels I can select from is some kind of "strength" indicator?

Someone help me understand this please

(Oh, and another thing, if I shoot RAW, will Sony's IDC be able to reproduce the DRO effect completely ? On previous cameras it could emulate the standard DRO but not the advanced+ type, as I understand it)
