Blown out highlights

All is looking good with the XF these days, except that it seems to blow out highlights much more than previous cameras. What is best adjustment for that? Is it knee? Any advice on how to reduce that?

thanks!

Bill, have you got this under control yet? If so, what's been your approach?

Grazie

Re: Blown out highlights

On the XF100 under "Other functions" if you enable the "Press" feature it compresses the dynamic range of the signal so that it doesn't exceed 100%. Not sure if the same feature is on the XF300/305 but it does seem to work as advertised.
