I'd like your comments on low light photography using the FZ20. How is it with you? I find that it is at times difficult even when using the onboard flash. Are you experiencing the same issues or is it my technique?

When necessary:
If it can move flash, usually turned down a tad.
With a new baby visiting right now its flash flash flash. I normally hate flash
but with it turned down the light appears pretty natural with the white balance
set properly.
If it is stationary a tripod and time.

depends.. what "issues" are you experiencing? low-light photography is always more challenging than shooting in good light, but the FZ20 is quite capable in this regard if properly used...

If the image you are focusing on is stationary then set your FZ ona tripod, turn to Manual Mode and adjust your exposure by pressing the shutter button slightly which will give you an exposure meter on the lcd. Depending on where you set the meter will determine how bright or dark your picture turns out. I don't normally shot with flash in low light in this situation. (When the object doesn't move.)

If the image is not stationary then lighting is key.
