I just wanted to double check with everyone to confirm that the Panasonic LX7M, Panasonic FZ200 and the Canon EOS M actually have manual settings for aperture, shutter and gain/iso while the camera is in video mode. The only reason why I'm suspicious, especially in the case of the Canon - is that Canon's DSLRs in the $800 - $1000 range don't have full manual controls while in video mode.

Any further feedback would be appreciated.
I own an EOS-M. It has FULL manual control in video mode: aperture, shutter, and ISO. You have the option of auto ISO in manual mode. You do not need 'Magic Lantern.' The EOS-M also has full manual control of audio, with the option of a limiter. Neither the LX7 nor the FZ200 have manual audio control.

I own an M also, it is a great video cam for a ridiculously low price. Beyond that look to Panny for a camcorder. I have a tm900. Lots of manual controls.
