Using AE Shift of Sony FDR AX33

Excellent explanation, Ron! I'd add that I can set a max level of the gain on the AX33, too. For example, when I want to work with a fixed 180 degree shutter I, set the shutter, then the camera calculates the iris, since the gain is maximized, and with the AE shift practically I have total control on the iris (shutter set, gain maximized). I simply cannot imagine a situation where, the AX33 wouldn't give me total control of the exposure. I think the Sony engineers made an excellently elegant and simple exposure system here, the only job for us is to experiment with it.
Thank you, Miki
