Manual and 1/50sec is good, but that will depend on the light and what aperture you want. It is common to use ND filters for video in order to get the light down as the shutter speed does effect the final result. Most film (or film like video) is shot at half the frame rate - ie 1/50s for 25f/s. If this is not possible use what you have to, but always use manual. You do no want the camera changing settings on the go. Try to use a tripod as it is not a good look to have the camera waving around. As you get more practice it is possible to hand hold for wide angle, but never for telephoto.
