Best advice for G85 low-light indoor situations

Hello,

I use Lumix G85 + 12-35 2.8 lens. I have found myself in indoor situation with kids, that I have a real trouble to get satisfying results.

Here are my doubts:

1. I can set in A mode aperture to 2.8, I try to not exceed ISO more than 3200, then shutter goes something like 1/20. For kids it's not sufficient and results in blurry photos too often even with Double IS.

2. I can shoot with build-in flash, bounced off the ceiling, but it's not so easy to find appropriate light power. I have a really bad experience with flashing straight light (without bouncing) for a scene => maybe some advice here? Using Scott Kelby advice, he is strongly against using build-in light, as this light according to him is too focused and too sharp.

3. I could use an external flash light and learn more about using it => could it resolve my indoor issues? Do you have some recommendations here about the particular models?

4. I could use some prime lens, but I really like the flexibility that 12-35 offers.

5. I could use a tripod of course, but with kids handheld shoots are more more convenient.

I would be extremely helpful for your practical advice from using g85 or m43. Thanks.

Panasonic G85
