So, does the Nex allow you to set the shutter directly in video mode? If so, that's the first I've heard of that.

Apparantly not. I had read elsewhere that shooting in shutter priority would. But I had not actually tried it. So I started experimenting with the various modes and shot some test video which I then checked with DVMP, and sure enough, the shutter did not remain where I had set it. Bummer.

It is interesting that shooting in aperture priority does keep the set aperture, but alas that is not the case if you shoot in shutter priority.

A simple firmware fix could correct that, but will Sony do it? My guess is no.
