    Have been using this camera for some time now, but try as I might I cannot get any decent photos in low light.

    What are the best settings to use, short of the night setting where you have to use a tripod as the shutter speed is slower - this is of course a little inconvenient if you are trying to take photos at a concert.

    Any tips ?

    Well for low light, you're going to need to an aperture of at least F2.8 for available light, and often lower for concerts. But i dont know what you can set your's to right now but i'll check for you later.

    Hi chaps

    Just giving this thread another airing as I was going to post the question - and realised I had asked the same a year ago.

    I was at the England game last night, and the good lady was taking photos of the team (or more particularly Lampard -well she had to do something in the second half bore-a-thon), and the old question of capturing good low light images came up again.

    I can't see how with this camera (Olympus mju410), decent pictures can be taken in low light over more than a couple of feet.

    You can take it with the flash on, which results in dark images, or turn the flash off, which results in a longer exposure, but of course movement and blurring.

    Is there any good compromise (with this camera), or are we only going to get decent shots in broad daylight ?

    Cheers
