50i sounds good, the cine-frame mode on that camera is weird. What software are you using?
If you are looking for a "dirty film effect" I suggest Magic Bullet or Nattress. They both have nice color correction suites also. If you shoot it with the mind set that you are giong to use those plug-ins don't over expose too much. You want a low contrast "digi neg" to start with or you can't push it very much.

there's possibly one reason to shoot black and white though, and that is compression. having no color will leave 50% more bits for the luma channel. i haven't tested what difference that makes but if you use a filter on the camera it will also be encoded directly to luma assuming that the in-camera black and white function operates in 4:4:4, which could also mean a slight advantage. just test all options and i'm sure you'll figure it out.
