Question about HDR


Novice Member
Hello everyone,

on my Playstation 5 I always play supported games in HDR but I'd like to know if the image is set up properly. When comparing HDR to SDR I feel that SDR looks a lot more colorful and oversaturated while HDR has less saturated colors and looks more natural but also a little bit "dimmer" than SDR. Is this normal and how it's supposed to be? Below are some pictures I took with SDR on the left and HDR on the right. What do you guys think? My TV is a Sony X900E. Thanks for any help.

I guess it depends on your SDR picture settings. Possibly worth checking your HDR settings too, and have a look at your PS5 HDR settings. There are vids on YouTube that can help.

I find HDR games typically have a bit more punch than their SDR counterparts. You seem to have the reverse!
