Due to the limits of my camera, the camera doesn’t pick up shadow detail that is displayed on the screen, so I have provided a second, significantly overexposed photo of the same frame.

At no time viewing any DVD, HD-DVD or HDTV, did I find any scenes where the Panasonic gave the impression of being flat without any detail at all in large dark areas where shadow details should be present.
