I use s compact flash and the photos taken show shot that are poor color quality and seem to fade of run. i have tried to chande compact discs to no avail

This may be a camera rather than a card problem, you need to isolate the issue.

1) If you have another card, take a photo and check, if the photo is good then you've a card problem. If the photo is like the others you've got a camera problem.

2) If you don't have another card, you can try taking out your current card and taking a photo, this should store on you camera's internal memory. If that's poor, you've got a camera problem.

3) All of these photo's should be transfered to a pc for checking. If they're poor on you camera and good on the PC, it's probably you camera LCD thats got a problem.

Poor Resolution

e sure the quality setting is the highest - 7 megapixels. Otherwise, why buy a 7MP if you shoot at 3MP. The Canon 750 seems to have excellent picture quality where the Olympus has soft focusing (reviews at C-net).

Pictures are blurry; quality of photos seem compromised

As simple as this may sound, have you cleaned the lens lately? A lot of image quality deterioration comes from a finger print or other smudge on the lens. Digital cameras are succeptable to even the smallest gunk on the lens. Because the lens element is very tiny, use a cotton swab with a drop of lens cleaner (or isopropyl alcohol) to thouroughly clean and dry the lens. If it isn't a dirty lens, check your file-size and flash settings.
