Your camera settings will always vary, based upon the lighting situations you are in. If you are in a low light situation, you will want to let more light into the camera. From what I understand, the ZS50 traded off resolution for sensor size. In other words, they made the image sensor bigger to allow more light, and gave it a lower pixel resolution to compensate for it. Regardless, in low light situations try to refrain from using the zoom as much as possible. The maximum aperture for the camera is F3.3, which isn't bad at all for a point and shoot. However, as you zoom, that aperture gets smaller, letting in less light. The shutter speed should be about double your frame rate. So if you were shooting at 1080p60, you would try to set your shutter speed around 1/120. Likewise if you were shooting at 1080p30, your shutter speed would need to be around 1/60. I don't know the shutter speed increments on that camera, but try to to keep it double the frame rate. ISO in low light will probably need to be 800, 1600 max. Anything above 1600 will be very grainy. If you are in situations that are in good to great lighting or outdoors, your settings will start to move in the opposite direction, as you don't want to let too much light in, blowing out the image (making it very white).
As with any new camera, audio recorder, microphone, etc, take time to read the manual and learn how to use the manual settings. Practice, practice, practice! The better you understand the manual controls, the better chance you have of maximizing your camera's potential with video. I hope this helps you out a little, and good luck!
