How can I adjust gain on Z3 lcd screen?

When camera is on manual, in low light situation picture on lcd is hardly visible, no matter what I do. Andwhen I switch to AUTO, lcd gains up... How can I do it manualy?

Thanx

thanx nols
but this is lcd brightness, not gain. it just adjusts brigthness of the screen, but does not make picture any more visible in low light situation. it brightensup all the pixels of the scrren, so if all of them are black, it just makes them grey...

in a meantime, i figured something out: lcd tries to show how the photo would come out as faithful as possible, so it keeps it dark in a manual mode until you open flash, then it lights it up significantly.

Ah, well in that case, we're both out of luck there. Even the high-end digicams like the Panasonic FZ20 have trouble with gain in low-light situations. This is just a limitation of the digicam technology.
