In the last couple patches something has changed the way focusing in daylight works it has gotten to the point that during the brightest time of the day its hard to see i find myself rubbing my eyes squinting and trying to focus. I don't know how to explain it, its really really bright but at the same time dark if that makes any sense at all. The worse part is when you walk from inside a shadow to a full sun area its like overexposure to the max then it gets dark its like a camera trying to focus but way out of control. If i look down at the ground then up at the sky its like the camera loses its focus, and if you are standing in the sun looking into the shade it makes the shaded area hard to see or visa versa basicaly anytime there is a brightness change. I am constantly squinting and rubbing my eyes while playing and its getting uncomfortable and no other game, application, tv or anything in the world for that matter makes my eyes feel like that but Dayz. When I play on night or rain servers it still does it but everything looks normal, dawn and dust servers look amazing but full daylight is brutal I think its the HDR that does this but i cant turn it off.
I understand the eye does this in reality but nowhere near this extent. I would record something to show you but shadowplay is too dark to see for me even with the alt-tab workaround or window mode.
