Use the low lit presets and play with shutter speed. I think it is ok in low lit but give it some light it is a fab.

24F, 1/48 shutter, zoom of Z54, f/2.0 (i.e. get closer), press blacks, then gain up as much as you need. 12db or greater may benefit from noise reduction software in post or in-camera. That's all I can think of.
