P5000 movie mode auto exposure: Forced?
Jun 24, 2009

The review states that "the video adjusts its exposure using variable gain, rather than by adjusting shutter speed or aperture. The automatic exposure can result in rather 'stepped' exposure changes - the aperture is locked so the problem seems to stem from amplifier stepping."

I'm a bit dissapointed that this review does not mention whether this obviously horrible limitation can be circumvented or not. I would say, being able to disable the ugly auto-exposure changes during recording is crucial.

Does anyone know whether you can disable it?
