    Ok so i dont have a big pro camera like some but the camera takes good quality photos as you will see once i upload my new site soon, I was using it at the speed way jsut as the sun was going down and once it was dark all the photos were crap, and i couldnt use the flash, and flash wouldnt really mater as i was 50 or so metres away from the cars....

    The camera has a preset night mode and a preset sport mode but i couldnt have both so i tried manual setting but i know nothing about it can someone help me thanks..

    you need to use a tripod along with the night scene mode and you'll get great results.

    A good tripod and manual focus are a must for any night photography. Go a head and buy a tripod new, don't rely on a second hand one if unless you have to. Manual focus is a must due to autofocuses tendancy of inability to find the appropriate subject in low light situations.
