Default A new twist on the Fuji 3800 low light pix problem

As a true newbie when it comes to photography I am amazed with what this camera just did. I read so much in my research about the problems this camera has taking pix in low light that I ALMOST didn't buy it. It seems to work wonderfully in regular nighttime indoor lighting and I just stepped into a VERY dark basement, I used the flash and can not believe the picture! It is awesome, you can take pictures in the dark with this camera and see everything, I can't wait to take nightime shots in the snow. Yes, I was shooting blind since I could not see anything on the LCD but it's easy enough to shoot, check and reshoot if you need to. This is fun stuff!

just some food for thought, using full zoom in lowlight can really reduce the amount of light available to lens. if you ever have problem try reducing amount of zoom.

I agree with the initial comments...I've done some shots with no light and have gotten good results.

The problems with low lighting is inability to focus (having a manual focus is handy for those instances, or at least a focus assist beam on your camera), and unable to see anything in the viewfinder (especially cameras with EVFs, Electronic Viewfinders).
