I had the same problem. Solution is simple when you know. If you apply the Procamp (Process Amplifier) to the clip, you then adjust the contrast below 100% to say 92% and then it will recover your highlights. I have found some cameras are worse than others, my Panasonic was terrible with super whites above 100% and I need to apply this processing all the time, whereas my new Sony is a lot better.
