    I know a little about digital and zip about film but I would think what you plan on shooting has a lot to do with the settings. If you have any idea what you're planning on shooting maybe someone more knowledgeable can offer up some suggestions.

    If the subject isn't moving, feel free to use a stopped down aperture on a tripod too...

    Depending on what kind of 'night' shots you're doing, it should be possible to hand hold with 3200. This shot is from my K1000 is 400iso, pushed to 800, handheld, while walking, and wide open. It was night. City lights help.. of course, if you're not near streetlights, the tripod suggestion is valid.
