  Instead of gain, open the iris (lowest number/largest opening
is f:1.6) or use 1/25s shutter speed:

 Shutter speed, f-stop (iris) and gain amount are all shown in
the viewfinder.

a) Turn gain off.  Is the picture too dark?

The gain is a flip switch on the left side, next to the white balance switch.
It has three positions (from top to bottom): High, low and off.

b) Open the iris (shiny metal knob) wide open.  Still too dark?
c) Increase the shutter speed (default 1/50s) to 1/25s.

 The shutter is set with the menu wheel at the back, near the bottom.
If the shutter speed is 1/25s, you'll see "25" in the viewfinder.

d) Set the gain to 9dB, if the above was not enough.
e) Last resort(!): Use 18dB.  Only required in pretty dark environments.

 You can also use even longer shutter speeds, with flickering and blurry
results.  At 1/6s, the camera sees more than your eyes, in full colour!
