I set all of the parameters to low - low contrast, low saturation, low 
sharpening.  I'd rather do all of that in Photoshop and it's much easier to 
add than to subtract.  There are a couple of ways to increase the dynamic 
range.  You can take two photos, one light and one dark and combine them in 
Photoshop.  You can use Fred Miranda's Dynamic Range increase action that 
you can buy for 
$8.50   He's got 
lots of great actions for very cheap and they all work.

I don't generally have too much of a problem with the dynamic range of the 
Digilux or Lumix, though.  Metering off of something that is about Zone 5
