External Recorders and Superwhites

I'm a C100 owner looking to add an external recorder, namely the Ninja 2...

The C100, like the GH2 before it, seems to bury a lot of information (a lot!) in the superwhites. When I view footage in quicktime player or import it using legal range, I get clippy highlights. When I import it using extended range (using 5DtoRGB) there is much more highlight detail.

I just want to confirm that external recorders take advantage of the extended range. Little point adding a prores recorder only to lose latitude over the built-in codec! This confuses me a bit, though, since the viewfinder and EVF appear to display the legal range image, and I assume an HDMI monitor would, too, so I have my concerns. Please allay or confirm them! Thanks!
