Z1 X HVX / DVX dynamic range / burn out

Hello
I wonder if and how much better the HVX200 / DVX100a dynamic range and resistence to burn out the whites are comparing to Sony Z1.
Thank you
Ron

In my limited experience with the DVX100, it seemed to have much more dynamic ranges in the whites as well as blacks, but only if set to the proper settings. I think the best part about these cameras is their image control options -something which is really lacking by comparrison on the Z1U and more so the FX1, which is my camera. If I could build a camera, it would do everything the HVX200/DVX100 can do in terms of control, but include HDV since it's much cheaper and easier than any real HD solution and still looks very very nice.

For now, I use Natress in post for getting nice color and tone results, but it would be best to have more control in-camera.
