Why would I turn the mode dial to movie to shoot a move as opposed to just pressing the "take movie" button while in still image mode.



The manual doesn't really say. About all I could find is a sentence under movie mode that says "you can also take a movie from still image mode.." However, it doesn't say what, if any, compromises are made.

I would think that the only reason that the movie mode is still on the dial, is not to confuse owners of previous Canon cameras who are used to it there. I cant think that there would be any compromises...

the reason is that you can change the settings of the movie ie resoltion and fps, and sound options while in the movie mode. If in still mode and you hit the movie button, you get whatever you set previously.

You can set the fps and resolution for the movie in any shooting mode. I think it is right below the still pictures size and quality setting in the function? menu.
