Most (but not all) scene modes and effects work in video mode.
Optical zoom works while filming video, though it zooms even slower than in still-photo mode, and the audible motor noise gets picked up by the microphone.
Autofocus is surprisingly quick and accurate in video mode. We don't usually see such responsive movie AF in compact cameras.
Exposure and ISO can be set prior to filming.
In addition to cameras and medical imaging equipment, Olympus is also a leading manufacturer of voice recorders. They've included some of their voice-recording tech in the TG-1 (synergy!), and the stereo sound is generally clearer and crisper than we hear out of most camera. Recording and playback levels can be adjusted, and a wind-cut option is available as well.
