Didn't see a post regarding this, so hope this is not a repeat.
This question is for those that have experience with both FX and DX cameras; how much better is the dynamic range for FX over DX (especially in regards to highlight control?) And I mean in real world uses, not the charts that Dxo Mark has.
One thing I dislike about digital is that it does a lousy job at controlling highlights in comparison to negative film. I shoot in a lot of high contrasty lighting situations, and many times, the highlights get easily blown out in my DX camera, but look so much better in film. Does FX do any better job in this regard? If not, is there anything that gives a similar dynamic range to film? Or is there a method that people use to imitate film, like some pseudo-hdr to retain both shadow and highlight detail (without it looking like its obviously hdr)? Thanks!
