P5000 movie mode auto exposure: Forced?

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?
