I wish it were even the same as a booklight. It's not the shadows that are the problem, it's the pastels in many cases, and there is no way of getting rid of them, unless you switch "off" the light, only that then the contrast is worse than on the K4s I have. I must admit that I have been thinking of just sliding the light slider to zero and using a booklight with it, but it seems a bit nonsensical to do this with the PW. Or keep the PW for daytime use, because I really like the interface, and use the K4 at night. Again, seems a bit nonsensical to do so.
