You mention night shots.. My guess is that your ISO is racked up pretty high..
Higher ISO ratings = More grainy pictures

Use lower ISO, smaller aperture (e.g. F5.6 or F8) and use a tripod.

Read the newbie guide. No point trying funny numbers without knowing what that means and what effect changing these numbers will have.

iso.
the lower the better.
imagine it's how the pic react with the light.
if u hv ample light, lower iso is better
if it's dimmly lit,then higher iso is needed to compensate but the pic is grainy.

know where to use this gainy effect to ur advantage is good also...

eg a retro pic in black&white etc...
