Shooting night video with the G16

I'm looking for advice. I've only had my Canon G16 for about a month and I need to do some extensive night video. I'm wondering what's the best setup to use.

 

Can I adjust ISO, white balance, etc. while shooting video? (I know I can adjust exposure compensation because there's a separate dial for that.)

 

If so, I'm wondering what are the best settings to minimize noise while giving me my best shot at a useable video clip. Can you help?

Charleyhorse,

 

The items you mentioned need to be set before you start the video. Once the G16 is running the video, you cannot make adjustments to white balance, ISO, etc. The people I deal with all run the video for their G16's in Auto mode and let the camera make the decisions. But like myself, they don't use video very often, so hopefully someone with video experience on the G16 can give some better insight.

Thanks for the input.
