Customer Question

Lumix GF1 camera: When I try to shoot in the nighttime (for example, to take a picture of the moon), the shutter locks out and will not fire. The stabilizer icon turns to the red "camera shake" image. I can't find a way to override it: I have tried different shooting modes, timed shutter release, etc etc. I can't find a way to shut the stabiliser completely. Help please!
