Highlight correction

Hi All,

Did you find your K-7 will get very much noise when turning the highlight correction on? With ISO 100, turning it on will give you a base ISO 200, but the noise it added is more than ISO 400! So should we always leave it off?

Shadow correction is fine.

in my understanding it should be vice versa.. highlight correction shouldn't produce more noise, while shadow correction should.. at least in current pentax cameras..
