Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 Digital Camera
I have taken pictures in daytime and results are very good, but I am not able to take pictures at night. I have taken many pictures at nighttime in 'P' mode but all are very bad. Most of the subjects have lights (e.g. small boats in sea with many decorative bulbs or big hotel building with lights all around) and these pictures are really bad. Please suggests me what type of setting should I select to take pictures in night mode ????

I have had some success with going to A/S/M mode and setting: -ISO to 100 or 200 (depends how dark it is) -A/S/M mode to 'S' -Then press the exposure button and set the shutter speed to something very sloooow, even to maximum if it is dark enough -Put your camera on a tripod or something stable where you are not going to be touching it when it takes the photo -Set the time delay feature by pressing left on the control panel and use the short timer to make sure there is no movement when the shutter goes -You may need to pre-focus using manual focus, as the FZ10 is bad at auto-focusing in the dark. To do this, I usually set the focus mode to manual by moving the switch on the left of the lens, then I focus on my subject if it is bright enough to see through the viewfinder, otherwise try to find something that is about the same distance away that you can see and focus using the focus ring

Try using the night mode on your FZ10, but use a tripod.
