Digital Cameras after Dark

I'm looking to upgrade my little less than $100 digital camera I got last year and am wondering what digital camera would take good pictures at night that is also priced $200 or less.

Thanks for any help

Or you can find a camera that has manual shutter adjustment.

I took it recently with my Sony DSV-1 (or something):

It looks like he set the camera down to take the pics. In the Coliseum pic you can see he set it on the grass.

I didn't use the tripod on these pictures - on cruise, I set it on rail. And on Colosseum, I set it on above the ground cement with grass (you're right, crazyronin ).

It's recommended to use tripod for long exposure pictures.

Fuji F30.



I got it for christmas and it's pretty much universally accepted as the best low light compact camera ever.
