superb photo at daylight but at night have to go manual

 

its dedicated night portrait can take good picture at night but need tripod . try to change the white balance at night from auto to different light mode it helps to take good photo

what ever it takes you won't say that it could be much better than that .its auto is enough to take great picture at day .it has 60 second shutter speed which is great for night street or building picture(of-course need tripod ). manual ,panorama opt

at night indoor auto mode just make dark picture .so you have to learn the manual aperture or shutter speed and exposure to take good photo .you need a tripod to take good photo at night indoor cz those settings require steady place .no manual focus
