There's a reason why highlights are blown out.
Sure. Because film and CMOS-censors share a weakness: they are incapable of capturing a high dynamic range.
Your eye can easily look at the face of your loved one, standing in a shadowed room, infront of a beautiful sunlit panorama, and enjoy the entire scene.
No camera, film or digital, can capture details *both* in the shadowed face of a person *and* on the sunligth snow-covered mountains outside.
So yes, there's a reason. What is your solution ?
