This will happen on any camera with a variable aperture zoom, other settings can affect exposure changes too, such as auto-ISO, or using one of the program modes for video.  You want to take full control, shoot in M mode, manually set the ISO, aperture and WB so nothing adjusts automatically.  Yes, you can have smooth exposure through zoom in video, just set the aperture to the widest on the longer end before recording.
