I assume that the F30 would be a good canidate, correct? Any others? I would like to get something that has image stabilizations too.

Contriver-

Yes, the Fuji F-30 is certainly a good candidate. However, you might also want to take a good look at the Fuji S-6000fd. It uses the F-30's imager paired with the S-9000's great lens (effective in 35mm terms as: 28-300mm) which has a manual zoom ring.

Another camera that does quite well at lower ISO settings is the Panasonic TZ-1.

If you want the best night skyline shot look at the reviews from dcresource.com. His reviews of each camera show that exact shot you're looking for at different ISO settings.

http://www.megapixel.net also shows a night photo with every camera review. When visiting http://www.dcresource.com you will find that the Fuji F-30 and the Panasonic TZ-1 took excellent night photos of the San Francisco skyline.

The Sony H-5 also does very well at night. Thereis asample night skyline photo in this review:

Contriver-

Here are three night photo samples for you. They are all of the same subject so you can make a pretty accuarate evaluation.

Here is the Sony H-5:



Here is the Canon S-3:



Here is the Sony W-70:



I hope this helps.
