    1) If I'm shooting Aperture priority and start a video, will it use the f-stop selected for stills, or do I have to use Intelligent Auto+ "defocus control" to control the aperture?

    2) "Flicker reduction" lets you choose the shutter speed during video, when and why would I use this?

    3) AVCHD file naming resets to 0000.mts after formatting the SD card, any way around this?

    1) No. You can't set aperture, shutter or ISO in movie mode anyhow
    2) I guess it's useful for fluorescent type of lighting or something like that
    3) I would like to know that too, but didn't find any solution so far :frown:

    1) This is why manual lenses rock. ;)

    Oh, thanks for the replies guys - I didn't get an email notification.

    "Defocus control" in iA+ does let you tell the camera to open the aperture as far as possible, seems to work okay.
