This is a few pics from a game I went to recently.

This is from my seat.

This is my fz and my handy Tycon 17

One more zoom from my seat to across the court under the opposite basket.

And one from the 17th row while walking around.

These are quite good. The FZ20 does not appear to have too many low light problems here.

I recently took some photos at my son's high school band concert. The room was very dark and everyone was dressed in black formals too. I shot most photos with anywhere from 8-12x zoom and was really pleased with the quality, especially under those conditions and with everything I've read about FZ20s in low light, indoors, etc.

Here's a sample of a shot at 9x zoom:

RP33,

That first shot really gives us a feeling for how powerful that zoom is! I am suprised at how good those pictures turned out - with the extreme zoom and low light. I was under the impression that the FZ20 was a poor indoor camera. You have showed otherwise. Nice job!

I used a little free picasa to help them and a noise program but overall I thought it worked out well. The court had fairly new lights. Only a few years old.
