How do you bring down Only the highlights when shooting w/o making everything else super darker?

Shoot in a log mode and expose correctly. It pays to learn to use the Histogram to set the exposure manually.

I do but I was thinking if a CPL filter would help the "blown outs" but I assume it's like running a lower EV?

CPL is to cut the glare but in a way, it's like running an ND..

No, it is not like an ND, it is a Circular POlarising Filter, meaning you have to fit it on the lens, then adjust it to remove reflected light in a given polarising angle. But once in the air, it can change, this is why pros are wary of using polarising filters.

It won't.
Burnt out highlights can't be fixed after you shoot the image so get your exposure right the first time.

So if you run a CPL or ND the highlights will still match the EV throughout the picture?  There is no way to adjust just the highlights?

How many times do you need to be told, even the simplest things?
What part of NO don't you understand?

There is a feature on the A7 III in picture profile settings to control how much Highlight control there is.  I didn't look too far into it, but it does exist.  I was assuming someone would show a way how to do it with lenses but for your information, it can be controlled at the camera level w/ the latest tech.

Then tie your A7 under the drone and go and do it genius.

You have to have at least a Matrice 600 with the Ronin-M gimbal.  It's far beyond my current budget.

What set works on the P4PV2.0?  Does CPL work on the highlights?

You want other people to tell you how to do things but ignore advice from those with experience.
Why don't you just do some testing yourself to find out what works (and what doesn't)?

Because someone might have a deeper level answer.  We don't know what people know until they respond.  So if you throw the question enough you can get deeper meanings while taking time to strongly understanding people's perspectives which can be very similar to some others.  Some people have intentionally given the wrong answer.  This is dangerous but I don't care.  For others though, they would do it.

If you know enough to tell that some people are intentionally giving you wrong answers, you know enough to answer your own question ... but you don't.
You are just full of it.
How old are you?
I'm still guessing you are only 13 years old and have no experience of anything.
