If you have a good editor and some experience, then I would use PROTUNE with these settings:
Daylight Scenic shots:
ISO MAX: 400
WB: Set Manually (start at 5500K and adjust from there as needed)
Stabilization: ON (If performing super slow panning, turn off)
Daylight Slow motion (Super Slow)
1080p/120fps Wide (Super Slow) 2.7K/60fps (Regular Slow)
Remaining Settings same as above but EV 0
Stabilization: ON - If Body Mounted or mounted to moving opject, OFF if camera is on tripod or similar
4K/30fps or 2.7K/30
Same as above except EV 0 (or +0.5) and ISO Max 800
4K/24fps or 2.7/24fps or 30fps
Same as above but ISO Max 1600 (800 if you can)
If you have a simple editor or no experience editing (or just don't want to spend the time color grading)
Low Light - Night
Use the same settings for Photo/Time Lapse
If taking WDR be sure to have your camera and subject still, if there is movement, turn this OFF. Night Lapse should be used for time lapse except in bright daylight. Getting a time lapse of a sunrise or sunset is pretty awesome to add to your videos (great intro and ending). Just use Auto for your shutter and interval if you don't have much experience with time lapse. Daytime time lapse are easier to do if you just use time lapse video.
Use RAW if you have Adobe Lightroom and will edit the photos (a separate jpg will also be created, so you don't have to edit every RAW (.Gpr) file if you don't want to.
Have a few 64GB cards on hand and a couple batteries. A mount on an egg timer is a cheap way to take awesome panning time lapse.

Just a FYI, all of the Protune settings I mentioned above will look very soft and bland straight out of the camera. They are meant to be edited.
Also, if you are going with the second option, "simple editor or no experience editing", film in 2.7K/60 Linear during the day and 2.7K/30 Linear during low light/night. I prefer Wide because I get more detail on the sides of the picture and like the flexibility of correcting distortion as much/little as I like in the editor, but for simple editing, better to just let the camera do it for you and use Linear.
