Answers :

Try bring a tripod or monopod with you-you can than turn off the image stabilizer if doing this-this will allow the cameras shutter to stay open longer and take in more light. Things to try-turn flash off-use a high speed memory card-change iso and exposure values manuely-use a scene mode or put camera on a or p mode which is shutter or appeture priority and see what changes-must set up early and try different settings-try a external flash to boost your range
