Not sure why the merlin would cause you to use a shutter speed any different from other types of support. Is there some special effect you're trying to create? IMO, unless you have a good reason it's generally best to keep the shutter at 1/60 for NTSC and 1/50 for PAL.

I'm with Boyd - stick to the default. If it gets really dark for the static building shots at night go slow, or if it's very bright and you've run out of NDs and can't use maximum aperture, shorten the speed to 1/100th to soak a stop.
