"Don't use autoISO."

This makes no sense: if you fix the shutter speed (for good reason) and set the aperture (for dof or for sharpness), you have no choice but to use auto iso unless you are unsatisfied by the exposure.

Video is not like photography. In video you don't want the camera dynamically changing the exposure on you. Ever. It looks hideous. The problem is that in order to do that, you must hard-set the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. Unless the 5N doesn't change ISO mid-stream, that means no autoISO.

This is quite helpful actually. My question though is what about low light for video? Would it be better to keep the shutter and aperture set and just crank the ISO or use a slower shutter speed than 1/50?
