If you are shooting with the new film from the Impossible Project, you need to turn the button which makes the photos come out light or dark all the way to the dark side. At most cameras this little button is next to the lense. It's hollow and you should be able to see a little lense inside of it. You probably took your photos with the button to the light side, which causes your photos to come out lighter (this was useful for taking photos with a dark background).
I also recommend you to buy a flash for your camera. I use a Polaroid as well and I noticed how my photos didn't get overexposed when I used my flash. Odd isn't it.
The best settings depend on what you're taking a picture of and what you want that picture to say to the viewer. This is true whether you're taking pictures in the dark or in broad daylight.
In low-light situations you usually want to use the Aperture-priority mode (turn the mode dial to A) in order to get the most light through the lens. If the shutter speed is too slow, increase the ISO. You're also probably going to want to use a tripod or other camera support.
There are too many possibilities for any one setting to be "best" for everything. Shooting fireworks is not the same as photographing people at an outdoor cafe. Shooting inside in a restaurant is not the same as shooting a city street scene at night.
Entire books have been written on low-light shooting. You might want to visit a library or bookstore and take a look. Above all, experiment to see what YOU like. You're not paying for film processing, so try the different settings.
You're shooting in too dark lighting for your settings. Do you have the flash on? If not, that should fix your problem. If not, your camera may just be super sensitive to movement even at reasonable shutter speeds. That's its problem, but you can correct for it by getting a small tripod, or by resting it on something sold like a table or book while you shoot.
1. you could try it with flash, but the lighting in the picture would look artificial, won?t reflect the interior of the building as it really is, and the flash will cover only near objects leaving the rest dark, and we?ll be missing the point.
2. recommended ? place the camera on a stable platform(table, chair, shelf etc in lack of a tripod), adjust its vertical angle by placing some flat object under the front side of the camera, set it to auto or a preference to slow shutter speed(usually 1/60 to 0.5 of a sec according to the lighting), set timer(most cameras only give you about 2 seconds) in order to avoid vibrations during the picture taking.
3. you should avoid using more then 50 to 100 ISO, more will give you a grainy effect.
You are promised a sharp picture with life like colors that looks real.
