Shooting into the sun is always going to be tough, but if you want to pull
more out of the shadows you could, as I mentioned earlier, turn on Protune mode.
It's likely to look a bit washed out (due to lack of added contrast) but the darkest areas
will have more visible details so you have to tweak it yourself in the editor (Levels tool).
My preference for editor is Vegas Pro but I've been using it for over a decade.
If you do try a Vegas product be sure to right click on each imported clip select
Switches - Disable Resample. Otherwise you'll get an annoying ghosting artifact between
frames in a lot of different scenarios.

If you intend to do more slow-mo work, then you may want to try 1080p@60fps
although you can only use it with Protune off.

As for editing itself, you just have to keep in mind that the plane gets small in
frame really quick with no zoom (using any camera), so often you can get
away with just editing out the far away shots unless you really need to
convey continuous flow (or sound).
