Bingo.

In low light try shooting bursts (and cherry pick the best).  I call it "Poor Man's IS."  I gain about two stops.

Or use either the "Handheld Night Scene" mode, or the "Multi Shot Noise Reduction" mode.  They are custom built for low light shooting (can be very effective), but also keep in mind that they yield only JPEGs.
