I should probably add that it was on Auto WB. It might be a bit orangeish because the street lights in this town aren't exactly bright white. Usually the WB works pretty well especially on outdoor shots.

Default Long range flash

If you are interested in really reaching OUT with a separate flash unit - see

WHEN THE CAMERA HAS BEEN ON FOR A WHILE. DO YOU HAVE TO WAIT BETWEEN SHOTS FOR THE GYRO?

A couple of suggestions I have learned with my FZ10
1). You must allow the gyro in the thing to reach full potential. You can tell this by when the "hand" in the viewfinder truns white. Takes a good 10 seconds, sometime slightly more or less. Makes a big difference
2. Use flash up to about 10 feet; increase flash level as allowed by pressing top of thumb button 3 times, then right side.
3). If too far for flash. Again, be sure to allow gyro warmup. Use ASM mode. If no action, set aperature to highest level that allows shutter speed of about 1/60 to increase depth. If action, set shutter to min of about 1/100 and aperature will auto to 2.8. It will tell you if not enough light (indicator turns red). Then experiment with it at slower shutter speed, holding steady until you maximize your results. I have found that the gyro stabilizer allows you to increase light with good pic up to about 1/4 sec shutter speed. Again, you can't do this just after turning on the camera because the gyro isn't up to speed yet. That is the key.
4). I get excellent indoor shots on most instances (90%) up to 10 feet just using flash on P mode. I don't like waiting for the thing to reach stabilized speed, but I have traced most problems to that.
5) Take all shots on 4 megapixil resolution; any less is a waste of time.

To PAISANO5 question: No you don't have to wait from shot to shot. You only have to wait after you start up the camera. If you turn on the camera shortly after you have turned it off, it takes less time for they gyro to "warm up"
