Hi everyone,
I need help when taking pictures in low light condition with my FZ-3. It's all blurry.
I use anti shake mode 2, P mode, iso 100. I even used sport mode. Thanks for your help.

First the exif says you used ISO200 ..not that it makes a difference.

The shutter speed was 1/4 of a second which is very hard to hand hold but I think you did pretty good there.

But the subject would need to remain still for that long...not possible in those conditions.

A flash seems to be the only option there.

Yeah, but that looks like a picture of a performer far away so the flash would not reach unless you are using a powerful external unit. I have a Vivitar DF200 and it has worked nicely on me up to 15 meters. To me the only way to go is set the ISO to 400, use spot metering and if possible shutter priority to 1/60 for walking objects. faster than that would require longer shutter speeds. If not the only way to go is to get a DSLR :sad:
