I like to fool around with settings a lot, what do you tend to do with this setting? Do you lower the shadows or raise the highlights? Does it stay set until you change it? Thanks

On Panny there is an equivalent feature the Highlight/Shadow.

However it has only effect on jpg output, so more useful for SOOC jpg shooter.

I use it a lot to increase contrast (no fixed pattern, mostly depending on the lighting condition), to push or lower certain light pattern for more even brightness condition, like - on highlight or + on shadow on high contrast condition etc.

However please bear in mind, it is no difference from manipulation of the light curve in Photoshop. HS cannot increase the DR of the sensor. If the image had area of highlight overblown or dead shadow (no detail in them), HS can do nothing at all.

An interesting feature.
