THE HIGHLIGHTS AND SHADOWS settings are basically tone curves for either low contrast (flat image) or high contrast (bright whites and black blacks).

Where as EV controls are more like high key (very bright almost washed out) or low key (under exposed deep shadows)

These things are all image dependant and not set and forget type settings .

One of the advantages of using EVF is you can see these changes with each adjustment .I love the high contrast for black and white , it gives it more bite instead of bland tones of grey . . . . . . . . . .

Labe, I was struggling too, thank you for this very clear explanation.

I see that in the Highlights Shadows menu function I can quickly use the Navigator left-right, right-left to get 3 pre-set curves (of which you have shown 2), or I can use the horizontal and vertical wheels to get anything I like, e.g. Highlights 0, Shadows -4.

Your High Contrast /Low Contrast and High Key/Low Key explanation is very helpful.

Have you shown Pics 1 and 2 twice or am I reading them wrong?
