GL2 Manual setting advice

I'd like to try and shoot an indoor dv shoot in manual- but can anyone recommend some basic settings on the GL2 without getting to advanced for:

Indoor shoot against white canvas backdrop
Lot's of natural light, some filler light if necessary
Fitness-related with lots of angles

All or any help appreciated- still learning.

If your shooting indoors with lots of natural light, the camera is likely to go bonkers with the auto iris, especiallyif it is partly cloudy outside. I would set the camera to manual, avoid program all together.

The nice thing about a Gl is that you can choose auto focus or manual focus while controling exposure. If you don't want to get too advanced, shoot autofocus and just keep your subjects in the middle of the frame somewhat and you should be fine.

Well, All you need to know, is how to White Balance, Iris Control and Shutter speed...Make sure you move you lighting around until you the right look.
