    A 7hi would be nice but there is some battery overheating issue if you use it for too long.
    Z2(i own1) quite nice and fun to use.
    anyway just get some hands on the camera to try.

    iso100. aperture wise anything will do because it's sharp throughout f2.8 to f9.5. but to achieve the star effect maybe you can stop down the aperture.
