(Firstly apologies if this is a known issue, did a forum search and nowt came up.)

Tried this car and the cockpit view is pretty unplayable for me as it's washed out with bloom (I realise I can adjust ingame but bear with me), when I go to helmet cam it's pretty much perfect contrast. "so use helmet came" you all say....good point, except I want to keep my options open and like normal cockpit view sometimes. Just wondering why the inconsistency of two very similar views?

I actually found after 5.0 it was a tad too bright. Don't know if it's just me but 4.0 was perfect for my eyes.

I played it post patch 5 and it was still too bright compared to helmet cam, I just wondering why two similar views have wildly different contrast outside?

Well done mate. Great example of humanity you set for your children.
Hate to be your wife.
Get some perspective on your life. This sort of reaction over a game and/or a $5 DLC is pathetic.

As for the OP, weren't there requests for the Vantage cockpit to be brightened, pre-5.0? Agree I don't see how any in car view should be very different in brightness. Haven't received the patch on PSN yet, but I'm curious to see how much brighter it is. I exclusively use cockpit view to race, but avoid GT3 except for organised races.

I found this too, the view OUTSIDE is too washed out and bright in full sunlight . I switched to hood cam and it was perfectly playable. I should go back and take pics , but I am pretty sure it was at Dubai .

We are talking outside the cockpit in sun, the fix is the inside of the cockpit in the rain .

Sort of the complete opposite ;)

Aston Martin Vantage GTE tweaked cockpit exposure to work better with rainy conditions.

You can see the cockpit of the GT3 is too dark, no details.

Seems like there's is no perfect fit. Either too dark cockpit or too bright exterior, pick your posion

I understand that Umer, but the GTE helmet view is more or less perfect, normal cockpit view is washed out. It's a similar view in the same car with wildly different contrast. I'm just wondering why.

Seriously, is this a wind up?

Can we please get this fixed, and standardise exposure for all cars once and for all!

Or at least give us back the ability (we previously had through the F1 menu) to adjust it ourselves.

Mine looks exactly like this since 5.0 and I was just assuming that it was a known issue and was going to be fixed, but I guess not?

I'd like to drive this car but its not possible in cockpit or helmet cam - extremely overexposed just like your pics.

I noticed this today as well. I was at Spa and the cockpit view of the Vantage GTE was so bright I couldn't make out kerbs and brake markers.

Race in medium cloud, instead? :p
Sunglasses?
Joking
Suppose you can't choose weather/time conditions in career mode.
It's not so bad on my TV unless I'm at Dubai in a summer afternoon.
A small adjustment to exposure is necessary

Wow, looks like winter racing. Actually, it looks like the highway between Calgary and Edmonton in January (Google Map that if you don't know where that is). Not what I would expect in the middle of the desert. Hope this is fixed soon. BTW, is there a reason why every car has a different exposure?

...even $1 USD could be a lot of money for some people, not sure where ignorance comes from, and there is nothing pathetic about it, it is his hard earn money or however he earned his $1 USD or even 5cents...to some people 5cents could be another persons $100! so keep those ignorant posts to yourself and have more respect for people who are not as fortunate as you to p**p $$$ money in the bathroom every time you take a d**p...!!!

Really if $1 is a lot of money to you , then you should not be spending money on computer games .

God dam...Your driver must be 8ft tall. Reminds me of Forza 6's driver.

If you go closer to the windscreen im sure you'l find the lighting will be far better.
