I'll give it a try. But I really wanted to be able to leave the shutter at 1/50 and have it not change. Either way, I havent given up yet. I have had a chance to compare it to the Canon 650d which four write up say it is better in video mode. It may be better to use in video mode, but all I can say about the picture quality in video mode and photo mode, compared to the Nikon is, it is ####. I am a bit tired of all the write ups. They always say one is better than the other and when I base my purchase on this info, I am always disappointed. I am glad I went for the Nikon even though the write ups said Canon.
