    Can any owner of coolpix 3700 confirm that exposure is constantly adjusted
    during movie shooting.

    This might look like a silly question but I currently own a Canon G3 and
    exposure is locked at the beginning of the movie. If the lighting condition
    changes during movie ... well too bad for your movie !

    I tried the 3700 for a week or so. In the video mode it does adjust for the
    lighting conditions. One drawback though is that there may be an
    audio/video sync problem, where the audio is slightly off sync. I was able
    to fix mine by converting the video to an .avi file, and using Virtualdub to
    resync the audio (in the Audio Skew correction option), using -300ms.

    Not sure if the fast Pansonic SD cards would fix it or not. Personally I
    think its a bug in the camera. I really liked the camera otherwise.

    The Canon S1 has an excellent video mode also, of 640x480 30fps, and allows
    you to zoom also while the video is going.
