I tried filming on manual, it came out pretty sharp except it was grainy (f/5.6, ISO 400, Shutter Speed around 100-250, it was at a park in the morning). However, when I filmed on automatic, it came out better for some reason. It was less sharp but the grain was gone. Any tips on how to film on manual mode w/o the grain? Thanks!

It is futile to try setting the shutter speed above 60fps for D-movies.
I use Auto Focus f2: AE-L/AF-L set to AF-ON I press this button only to refocus when needed. You can keep it pressed on a moving subject Aperture Priority Auto ISO on: 100, 6400 and 1/60s Movie: 1080; 30fps; high quality Video mode: NTSC
