Low Light Camera

I previously wrote a question about the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ20. Any idea how this camera works in low light situations or next-to no light situation where a flash can not be used?

Low Light Photography

In reply to: Low Light Camera

The best camera for low light photography is a SLR (single lens reflex) camera with a bright lens (such as the 50mm f1.8).

Any camera that has manual controls can do a pretty good job in low light.

A point-and-shoot camera is a bad choice.

Where the Panasonic FZ-20 does very well, is with conditions where you need a long zoom under low light.

Most lenses will lose light as they are zoomed out. The Leica lens in the FZ-20 does not lose light when zoomed.

No matter which camera you are using, you will have to use the manual controls for the best results.
So learning about exposure and how to use it, is necessary.
