Question for the video crowd

Last week we had an awesome moonrise while the sun was still setting. I could see features in the landscape, although it was to the point where there was little visible color except for the orange moon. I tried to capture the scene, but without bracketing it was not possible to capture the landscape without blowing out the moon, or getting detail in the moon without a black foreground. Yet a few weeks ago while watching a baseball game they had a night shot of the city and the moon over it was orange and detailed. The traffic was moving along without streaking head/taillights, too. Everything was nicely exposed and in real time.

So why is it that a video camera can capture such a scene without a long exposure and the still camera cannot? Is it just the difference in sensors?

gain/iso? ND grad? could be a number of things, including a different overall scene.
