This isnt your grandfathers peaking :-) On all the CRT peaking monitors/viewers we have used peaking was a super sharpening thing that got sort of grainey sharp when you were in focus.
If you were used to this type of peaking, this isnt the same at all.

This is more like "digital" peaking, it finds sharp contrast areas, and highlights them :-( I dont like it much, if there is no sharp contrast bright type areas, you cant tell if your in focus with this type of peaking. and if there are a lot of sharp contrast areas, it will highlight them even if the pic is a bit soft.

Because it is more based on contrasty areas, and not based on sharpness of focus in all areas, I have no idea what the heck is going on. As the totality of the subject matter, lighting, and things that have different pictures changes, what gets highlighted changes. Perfect for that studio shot, or single sameness stuff. Bad to think your going to depend or use this peaking when the subjects stuff is all different, you will never know where you are at.

So for all of you not familliar with the new wizz bang version of peaking, surprise surprise, another digital revelution that doesnt mimic its analog counterpart.
If your shooting all sorts of different stuff, and depending on this type of peaking to assist you , It will just confuse and befuddle you instead :-) Oh My is it out of focus ?? who knows :-)
Re-learning everything all over again, one more time.
