24P with (say) a 1/200th shutter speed is not going to look good.

Manual Shuttter and Aperture

Another neat feature is the joystick, which allows you to set apertures and shutter speeds, control manual focusing and access the Quick Menu.

Are you sure shutter speed adjustment is available while in movie mode? If so, that's huge!

Dont have the camera. Just access to the reviews. Still deciding between another HV30, LX3 and the D90..

Anyone got an LX3 yet and tested movie mode? Manual control over shutter and iris would be the big deal.

I added a message a couple of days ago to one of the prolost vimeo clips asking about manual shutter control ... no reply as yet.

Surely someone can check on this for us and report back? Bueller?

OK, so the video quality of this camera is amazing, especially in low light. The macro combined with wide angle gives some amazing shots. Looks great on a 1080p display.

The bad news, as far as I can work out there is no manual control at all in Video mode and no AE lock either! You can manual focus and white balance however. So close yet so far.

Will try post video on Vimeo later.

Sadly no zoom during recording either, also I forgot to say that there is exposure compensation in video mode but it locks after it starts and the auto exposure then kicks in.

Bummer - that's the case with my FX-35 as well. The 720p looks great when the light is such that the shutter is around 1/60 - but any brighter and the footage starts getting that 'stroboscopic' high-shutterspeed look.
