Taken with my fz50 and tripod
Manual mode
Iso 200
Exposure 50 second
Aperture 4.5
Auto whitebalance
Contrast=high
Sharpness=High
Saturation=Low
Noise reduction=Low

It can do pretty well in low light with long exposures and a tripod.

I would consider that NO LIGHT. Is 4.5 the lowest setting the FZ50 will allow at ISO 200 and have you tried ISO 400 or 800?

The camera can go 2.8 at all the iso settings. I will get some more pics in low to no light at different iso settings to show some examples. Overall I think this photo turned out very good and has acceptable noise levels. I am still figuring out all of this as this is the first camera I have owned where I have control over the shutter speed and aperture. I have so much to learn still.

Why are you taking pictures of my backyard? Even though they are realistic, what are you doing there in the dark?:?

Nice photo, but I'm watching you.:|

Great mood.

I d set it at Std or Low Sharpen. Great exposure for this (yes, nearly no light) shot
