Default S400 Tips (What settings to chose in a nightclub)

I just bought this camera today and many of my pictures are going to be taken inside nightclubs. Can anyone give me any tips or what settings I should be setting this to get some nice clear pics?
Any help is appreciated!

According to what I've read on the s400, you have to use the slow shutter speed mode.

I hope you do not have shaky hands because ideally, you would have to use a tripod in order to have perfect results into that mode.

Yep. Long shutter mode gives great low lite (and rather surreal looking) photos with the flash turned off, but as already stated the slightest shaking will result in horribly blurry pics. To use it the camera has to be dead steady as in tripod or on a table of some other solid object.

Oh, and you can try jacking up the ISO to get more light in, but you'll also add noise. Exposure can also add more brightness. I'm assuming you won't be using a flash for obvious reasons.
