Default HUD is tinted too much?

Me and my friend analyzed the HUD purple tint after seeing the latest video of the Hornet, by Magz.

We came to the conclusion that the HUD purple tint too dark is and not very realistic.
A couple of documents below.

On the first video, when the background is bright, the purple tint is almost gone, but when the background is darker, the purple tint is a bit more present, but still not dark as in game.

Last two clips are from spanish hornets (EF18A+). Though its true that it has some different systems to the F18C, like the digital UFC (similar to the one in the superhornet)

I stand corrected. I wasn't aware of those.

The top video looks like it's tinted just right. Your comparing it from an angle that isn't correct. Let's just let them come out with it before we start picking out details we think are wrong...

Yeah, the models are different, but the point is the same. With current Deferred shader, it is really dark.
http://voodoo-world.cz/hornet/info.html - On this website you can find the a picture of the HUD.

Edit - It seems that "angles" play a major role in deciding whether something is realistic or not.

I saw a video of the Blue Angles and asked why the right MFD looked different than in the sim....I was told that it was something called the strobe effect from photography. Like the guys have said....different angles make a huge difference.

I love the fact that we're discussing HUD tints. What a great simulation this is going to be.

Is anyone of the readers not hurt by my post?
It seems that you understood this post as a request to remove the tint, which is not what I requested and I didn't request anything at all, it is just something what we observed and I wanted to share the thoughts.

I apologize, I should have know its the angles. This is something new to add on the "list of excuses".
