    Digicam take night shots will be very noisy (digital noise), u would also need some software to reduce the digital noise on photos.

    the reason why nobody replied is because your post shows the amount (rather lack off) research that you've done for yourself.

    perhaps if you want more replies, tell us what do you want in your camera, and what is your main purpose for it.

    also budget and brand preference would help us narrow your choice down.

    first and foremost, do your own research on the cameras that might interest you.

    here are some sights to get you started

    http://www.dpreview.com/
    http://www.digitalcamera-hq.com/
    http://www.steves-digicams.com/DEFAULT.HTM

    that should be enough for now.

    as much zoom as possible....
    6 or 5 megapixels
    SD card
    not too bulky. no DSLR
    images as 'natural' as possible...
    scene modes.
    nice night shots


    Any recomendations?
    Thanks!

    Budget below $1100. Nothing more.

    Default 2 sec not enuff

    It states in the specifications that F11's min shutter speed is 3 sec. Is that enough then, with the high iso making up for the rest of iT? just wondering.

    I've since shortlisted:

    Olympus SP 500 UZ
    Canon Powershot S2 IS
    Canon Powershot A620

    IMHO the A620 seems to perform very good at high ISO... sounds like a good choice for night photography..

    Hopefully some A620 user can post their image here...
