You took both pictures with a Kx and somehow with settings made it lighter ?
Sorry for not having expressed myself more clearly.

This is the same photo, the same raw file.

Read with ACR (neutral settings, 16Bit and black level 0) into Photoshop. First saved as is, the second after pushing the shadows.

in layman's terms , yes it means what you said.
the experiment shows that you can see more clearly inside the shadow regions. When you try to peek into shadow regions with shadow/highlight took it clears up better and retains detail without creating noise. This might be important for balanced exposure of scene as many times because of harsh light it is not possible to get everything with just one exposure settings.

It means if you didn't get the exposure perfect or wanted to play with a shot and increase the dynamic range (almost HDR with one shot) you can on this camera as opposed to other cameras with lower DR.

Not this time

But I think it is a known situation and I share the feelings expressed by LeDave above.

Thanks for the explaination.

It may also mean that for JPG shooters, the D-Range function with strong shadow boost is more useful on a K-x than on other cameras.
