I need some help getting a nice shot inside at basketball and such.

I don't think I can use a flash.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm still planning to try it by myself. But it is all depending from the light in the gym.
Your main goal is to boost shuterspeed as high as possible - so incerase ISO, which unfortunately isn't the best way regarding picture quality...
Maybee if it is small, well lighted gym (like one I'm planning to go here in Latvia - around 1000 seats only) you could do nice with only ISO200, but if it is large one than probably FZ won't do any good...
But as we all know indoor shots ins't the best side of FZ's, so don't count on very good results...
Would love to see your results tough :-)

I will post some in the upcoming days.

If we compare note maybe we can find a good combination.

I am trying to hold the shutter speed up and like you said use 200 or 400 iso.

But I have not had real good results. Shutter speeds I was using is around 1/60.

Not very good for action to me?

Well 1/60 definitely is too slow. I don't know, maybee 1/160 could be the min, but of course it's better if it's more than that.
But if 1/60 is at ISO400 than probably FZ is not the best choice for indoor actions shots w/o flash.

Most high school gyms are difficult ...college and pro arenas are better.

And I know this is not BB but the settings should be close.

Very nice pictures.

Was there very much PP?

Do you use Aperture priority most of the time when you are shooting sports with the FZ? I have been trying manual but not very well. Last do you offset the exposure any?

Those are not my photos but they were Taken with a FZ10 in aperture Priority....

the exif is included in the photos.

I had some really nice BB shots ,also not mine they, were really good at explaining what a FZ20 could do but the photos have been removed.

If your gym is well lit its OK but it can get bad quickly if the lights not good.

Good luck
