    It does show you in the review a night shot. night i have the canon ixus400 many of the same feature and parts, and they take great photo's at night. I drop the exposure when i use the flash in doors, that way you won't get harsh light.

    For night shots outside drop, the ISO to about 100, once you start to get to 200 and 4 you'll get noise (with any camera) without a tripod.

    I don't know how well it would light a huge dark space, those shots were at some distance, and i doubt many camera could pick up a building in complete darkness at that range. But close up i'd say it would be fine
