Also, in inhabited areas you will find an increased emphasis on artificial lighting as the evening changes over to nightfall; streetlights are usually either blue mercury vapor or orange sodium vapor lamps. No amount of filtering will change their color; they are all blue, or all orange, and very little of any other color. Fluorescent lamps have that sickly brownish or greenish color cast (which can be corrected somewhat with filtration), incandescents are golden (on unfiltered tungsten balanced film, house lamps are slightly orange as they run somewhat lower color temperature than studio lights do), and arc lamps like searchlights are brilliant white with maybe a touch of blue, depending again on your filtering.
At 9fps the shutter is open for a long time. Avoid unplanned rapid movements with the camera, as they will be just smeared frames, almost unrecognizable except as color and movement. Use a tripod if you want a stable image.
