For good quality night shots, you need to use a tripod. To get enough light, the camera compensates by having a longer time of exposition. But since the picture is taken over a longer period of time, any movement, as small as it may be when you hold the camera, will cause the picture to look blurred. I hope what I've just said is understandable...

Yea, this way the shutter stays open longer allowing the available light to expose the film for a longer period, or for digital cameras something with the chip. Higher ISO helps too but there will be more noise
