Beli, I look forward to seeing your shots from a tripod. If the exhibit is not moving, you should try to use iso 80 and in manual mode go for a long exposure. Most of these were in the 6 to 10 second range.
Ahhh unfortunately some of these will be moving.. fishes they are in a not so bright area of the exhibit. There are some pics of night animals I want to get but there is no flash photography in that section so I dunno.

Wonderful series backyard.

All that preparation (taping up to prevent reflections) paid off, nice bright colors

Beli, if you can't use flash select high sensitivity mode in the SCN mode. the megapixel will drop to 3MP, but ISO will will be much higher and give good results as long as you don't don't re-size the picture to much

Good point on the high sensitivity mode Square one - it is capable of some remarkable shots in quite dark places!
