    Did anyone notice the dark knight uhd version is lighter?

    I bought it today and put the UHD disc in one player connected to the tv and the standard blu ray included in a PS4 connected to the tv and compared some scenes, both inputs where using the same settings (bar hdr for the UHD) and I was a bit confused with it.

    The hospital and interrogation scenes seemed to be alot lighter on the UHD disc than the standard blu ray.

    Anyone else noticed this, or this down to it being HDR?

    All of Nolan’s UHD releases have been brightened up, might want to have a look in the 4K section for posts from late last year when it was first noted.

    I personally use bias lighting which increases the perceived blacks so never noticed any issues when I watched the Trilogy earlier in the year but did try watching a sequence from Rises with the lighting off and yea it was quite noticable.

    The black levels are a bit up and down on the whole trilogy but the 4K discs are a big step up on the first two (not so much on Rises).
