Is this camera good in low light situations?
Yes, great results from taking available low light shots (dimmed incandescent ambient light, indoors on very cloudy days, shadows, evening, darkened rooms at night, etc., no flash) in the iA and iA+ (automatic exposure) modes. The camera used ISO speeds in the 400-800 range. The pictures are very well exposed and lighting is even, and noise is not an issue. When necessary in iA or iA+ modes, in some low light situations the camera will take multiple exposures automaticallly (HDR) and combine them internally produce a great shot with balanced exposure levels. In the iA+ mode there is a wheel on the back of the camera that allows you to adjust the lightness of the exposure.
