Of course it's good enough. For a short doc, no problem at all. In fact, it's almost a perfect camera for that.

Have plenty of batteries and cards, and expose for midtones, letting the highlights blow out if they need to. Your footage will look great, I'm sure.

Thank you. How do I expose for the mid tones?

It just takes practice.  Others can probably explain that better than I.

For a documentary you're probably better off filming in video mode/shutter priority, setting the shutter speed you want, and letting the camera set the iris.
