Base on these spec, which one can take better and more beautiful night shot?

Need expert advice

Aperture range
Minolta F3.0 - F3.6
Coolpix 885 F2.8/F7.6, F4.9/F13.4
C2040 F1.8 - F10

minimum shutter
Minolta S303 4 sec + Bulb (15 sec)
Coolpix 885 8 sec + Bulb
C2040 16 sec

max shutter
Minolta 1/1000 sec
Coolpix 885 1/1000 sec
C2040 1/800 sec


The DiMAGE S304’s aperture ranges from f/3.0 to f/6.7 at wide-angle, and f/3.6 to f/8 at telephoto. Is it good?

Simply because it has a very fast lens at f1.8 & if you were to read any of the reviews on this camera, you'd find that there is always mention of its ability to handle low level lighting conditions.

any comments on S30 and S40, with shutter speed as fast as 1/1500, you can captures very still image in sports events, somemore, camera looks cools.. can be say as a smaller version of G2
