    Dimage Z1 night shooting

    Hello. everytime i try to take some night shots with my Z1 i get
    fustrated. imagine a big city view by the ocean. i can't use the flash
    so i set the camera on the tripod and the problems start. no focus, i
    always get the red dot meaning no focus, with night program selected
    or not. if i go manual and set the camera to self timer i never get a
    really clear night picture. the lights always seem to be blurred and
    so are the zoom used also. i increased sharpness but
    still no better results. what drives me mad is the no focus thing...
    any sugestion?
    i can send samples of what i am talking about.
