I would go for the fujifilm, it is likely to be more user friendly and the ISO setting of 6400 being possible will make it quite good for night shots. (Leeds Leeds Leeds).

You haven't said what sort of night shots you mean. Night shots aren't just a matter of point and shoot with the camera making good. A higher ISO especially on a camera like this with a small sensor will result in grainy 'noisy' images. I doubt in practice anything above about 1600 is truly useable and to be honest it's more of a gimmick. You would be better off with a secondhand DSLR and a tripod.

Of the two I would go with the Fuji here for a general purpose camera to get used to photography but the results won't equal even a cheap DSLR, particularly on duller days and in low light. It is a compromise camera with a lot going on for a small amount of money. There is a reason DSLR's (and their lenses) are physically bigger and more expensive. The sensors are bigger and the lenses let in more light and will be sharper. So long as you undersdtand certain principles which result in the compromise you can decide which camera suits you best.

I have had my last two fuji cameras and one for work from the Fuji refurb site. All have been as good as new and lasted years.

The S1800 is available for £114.99 + £4.99 delivery from there if you decide on that one.

There's no way it will be remotely capable of actually using that setting without producing a blurry mess, even iso 400 is going to have too much noise for most shots. These super high isos on compact cameras are total nonsense, the 35mm SLRs can just manage iso 6400 while keeping noise usable and the crop sensor SLRs are approaching that stage whereas compact cameras have plenty of noise even at base iso.
