If you are shooting 1080/25p, then set the shutter speed @ 1/50. Basically the idea is to double the fps speed. I would consider shooting under ISO 800 as the D800 can get pretty noisy. Plus the dynamic range of the sensor allows mabe 1/2 stop of pushing of the shadows. I'd use AF-S and use the AF-ON button to focus on the subject then shoot, unless you are fisheye or very wide angle (14-24mm), in which case, just focus on something about 1-2.5m away (as an inverse to focal length i.e. 14mm=1.2m 24mm=2.3m ) and maintain f8-11 for DOF coverage.
If you are one of those who like to just point and shoot, using the program will work, but it's best to shoot manually and block your shots in several takes, adjusting white balance for each shot at a particular depth or lighting condition. Good luck.
