The results were nice. I now use different gamma settings, but even in a worst case scenario, the EX3 didn't give me a raw deal on skin highlights...

Going into clip is very often a creative choice, not simply the result of carelessness or situational constraints. Clip is not inherently "bad," but a sudden, chroma-shifted explosion to clip certainly is. My video camera experience goes back all the way to the HL79, and the first video camera I owned that exhibited a beautiful, filmic slope to clip was the Panasonic VariCam. The Red Camera also has a beautiful transition into clip.
The AF100 clip I'd like to see posted is one with skin tones brought into clip, but with a nice gentle transition. It's said the AF100 has 10.5 stops of dynamic range; that should be enough to avoid the problems we've observed in the Japan tests.
Good shooting and best regards,
