Well, I guess it does something . . . . . . . . ..

Hi Mike,

All depends upon ambient lighting conditions and how one wants to use images.

A lot of my shooting done in adverse lighting conditions, along with changes in lighting while shooting.

Hence for 'myself', overall far easier to do highlights/ shadows adjustments with post processing rather than constantly fiddling with JPG settings—when I do shoot JPG.

As to 'in-camera adjustments'; been there done that. For over a decade shot a lot of slide film which 'requires' correct exposure and white balance as there's no post processing. Glad I do not need to do so any longer.

Just for fun, below are your two "Highlights 0, Shadows 0" with some 'quick tweaks' with PSE.

Being a old film photog, post processing is part of the fun/ creativity of photography.
