The image of the shoes sitting on the fence have completely blown highlights, is that the sign of high DR?

Haha! Your sarcasm doesn't go unnoticed Brian.
If you're being genuine then please accept my apology!

I'd say it is indicative of a scene that required a little negative exp. compensation but didn't get it.

That you can't leave the exp. comp set at +-0 & snap away carelessly regardless of the lighting & subject matter of a particular scene isn't a sign of poor DR on the G1X.

Just fyi Brian: If you shoot carelessly & don't pay attention to things like metering & exp comp, you can blow the highlights with any camera....again, apologies if you already knew this.

Your right, an easy thing to control for sure, but I thought dpr would try a little harder when producing a set of example images.

I had just been pondering over this image when I saw your point about having decent DR which I agree with by the way, so I couldn't resist showing it
