Exposure Control in Movie mode

Is there any way to engage exposure lock when shooting in movie mode?

As an alternative, perhaps it's possible to force movie recording when the camera is in manual mode? - this way you would have complete control over ISO, shutter speed and aperture when shooting movies.

For A-series cameras, press "+/-" button to lock exposure (or "disp" for cameras without "+/-" button), then "left" and "right" to adjust exposure ("fast video control"  must be turned off). Press "+/-" again to return to auto exposure mode.

For S-, SX-, G-, some A- and SD- series read user's manual, this feature already present in firmware.

The Ixus series (at least the newer ones) support AFL (Focus Lock) and AEL (Exposure Lock) + exposure conrol in video mode.

For the Ixus 860 (SD870) the keys are (when already in video mode):

UP (ISO): the exposure bar is shown (this is the AEL indicator) and the exposure is locked - with LEFT/RIGHT the exposure can also be adjusted (disable it with UP)

shutter half-pressed + LEFT: AFL enabled (disable it with LEFT)
