I would say have the preset ready. If it doesn't work, turn it off.

I don't have a preset for sunny/cloudy days. I would suggest going outside right now and experiment. Usually you don't need gain if it's sunny outside because there is enough light coming into the iris. Hope you're not confusing gain with the film look. Two different things. Again, with 30p use 1/60th and adjust the iris accordingly. If necessary inside/night, then uses gain...don't change the shutter speed.

I don't remember the technical reason, but I was taught that your shutter speed should be double what your frame rate is, i.e. 24p=1/48, 30p=1/60, and for some reason 60i=1/60 as well.

Anyway, it's really a matter of personal choice. But keep this in mind...you can suggest "looks" all you want, but what matters is what the client wants. If they want 1/30 with 30p, then that's what you should do. If you are the client, do what looks good to you. That's all I can say.

Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
