Default The High Sensitivity Scene Mode in Action

I was working on a Flash Lesson Plan today. Needing some photos for the PowerPoint presentation, I pulled out my FZ40 and shot this no flash/existing light only photo.

The only lighting was provided by one 60w light bulb in the overhead ceiling fixture. I was pleased with the photo. Once again it demonstrates how versitile the FZ40 really is, as well as its ability to deal with very low light photo environments.

Thanks Kevin and Joe-

Joe, can you let me know if the High Sensitivity Scene Mode is available on the FZ100. Thanks in advance for your help.

High Sens. scn mode has been around for a while (at least since the FZ28), so I'm sure the FZ100 has it as well. The thing is, in this mode the camera is set to a maximum of 3 MP, so cropping is very limited and so is the overall resolution.

Yerh it's available on the FZ 100.
So it works by increasing ISO at the expense of MP?
It has cranked my iso up to 3200 which is twice what I can normally select.

Thanks for the tip.

Yep! I'd use this mode in extreme circumstances only. I can not possibly imagine a 3200 ISO image coming from these P&S cameras to be that good.

Actually, Tullio-

The images look better that one might rightfully expect. I have several of them in Gallery at flickr. Just go to:
