I have both the lumix TZ20 and the Canon IXUS 230 HS, I got the TZ20 first to go on a trip but the still shots were well below Par with lots of noise, got worse in low light. The CanonIXUS 230 HS is great in low light with snapshots as well as Video. So I will be taking the Canon on my trip and leaving the TZ20 at home. It is a shame as I had great hope for the TZ20, I am now hoping there will be software up date to fix these areas.
