first settings on a sx50

First settings question followed by many more. Please bare with me. I know few use the auto setting, are there reasons that one would use this?

Digital zoom--- standard,off ,2.0x or what?

Servo af-----off/on

MaxISO speed,,,,,,,1600 or lower

High ISO,,,standard, high, low ??

What mode is best to play with? TV and mess with the shutter speed ?

AV and set the aperture and let the camera select the rest?

Etc....... These are all probably loaded questions, but as you see I'm just starting out trying to understand what ,when and why.

Is a UV filter a must have or do any of you all use one just for protecting the lens?

Thanks for your help
