Video Controls

Very few manual controls are available, and even fewer while a recording is in progress. Before starting a clip, exposure compensation may be tweaked +/- 2 stops, but that's about it.

Zoom

Optical zoom is unlocked while a recording is in progress, however mechanical speed is slowed to reduce noise from the motor. Strangely, this feature is governed by the "Quiet Zoom" setting, but only for modes other than video.
