Olympus xz1, very poor image quality.

I bought one of these, I was under the impression it was a super awesome point and click but ours is awful.

On default settings, set to auto point and click mode he images are really poor, not sharp at all and quite dark.

They don't come out as well as our 5 year old canon Ixus or even my iPhone 4.

We have tried 2 different photo printers, no joy, just dire.

Could we hav a faulty one?

What's our next move?

Any advice m suggestions appreciated.

Thx

Doesn't sound right - can you post some links to sample shots at reasonable resolution ?

Simon,

Feel free to be nosey in my Flickr pages. I have labelled most of my XZ-1 shots. It may help you compare?

For me the camera does very well as a compact. However, I do shoot in RAW. It does clip the highlights a lot and has limited dynamic range, but remember we are talking about a compact.
