I edited the above to include that you set exposure somewhere near the center of the pan... This is because
the focus will also be locked and you want the center of the pan focused...

Of course, on this little camera, there isn't a lot of difference between pressing the shutter button halfway down and pressing it all the way down.

Does the video have the same problem with regards to exposure (i.e. once the video starts it won't re-adjust the exposure)? If so, it's bad...real bad.
