This site really doesn't have a video forum, does it?
Yes, you can alter all of the other controls manually. You can also focus manually if you prefer of course. You can even switch from auto to manual while you are filming, depending on how you have things set up.
The auto focus is a new feature that works best with the new Canon STM lenses, the 40 mm and 18-135 mm STM.
You will find on other sites that people tell you to go all manual, with older lenses with aperature rings, prefereably ones that have teh click stops removed, etc.
Like anything, there are purists that obsess about every detail (not like at FM of course!) and peopel who are more pragmatic. Generally the first group is talking about pure "cinematic" or cine image making, the second group tends to be in more "run and gun" or quick moving situations.
I am quite happy with my Canon zooms and primes for video. I also have all manual lenses - the Zeiss 28 mm, 25 mm, the Canon 90 TS-E (manual focus at least, with a long throw), but i am probably going to sell those because something like my 24-70 works fine for me, even with the electronic shutter.
