Phillip Blooms tweets that Nikon D600 does not have manual control in video

I can switch the exposure dial to M in live view movie mode, and when I do that I can change shutter speed and ISO on the fly plus the exposure level. If I have a lens with aperture ring I can also change aperture on the fly (otherwise I have to exit live view before changing the aperture). Doesn't that count as manual control? What does he mean by manual control if not that?

Manual control in video means that you can change the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO while shooting video. You can't change aperture on D600 in video mode.

It will be very popular still camera, no doubt, but it lost the battle already to Canon 6D and A99 as a primarily video tool.
