Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS1 / DMC-FT1 Digital Camera
Unfortunately, it's difficult to answer this without seeing examples and without knowing what kind of photos you're taking.
But the camera shares the same fault which plagues so many other cameras these days which are trying to squeeze far too many megapixels from an undersized sensor: it suffers from horrible image noise at almost all ISO settings and it's dramatically worse above ISO100. Panasonic cameras are excellent but have a long-standing problem of being a bit worse than most other brands in this respect.
All you can do to minimise the effect is to avoid using high ISO's unless absolutely essential and to set the ISO to no higher than 100 instead of leaving it on Auto. Also, set the JPEG recording quality to the finest setting to avoid over-compressing the images. Your camera's design makes the issue worse as the lens zoom internally, so at anything other than wide-angle the modest maximum aperture of f3.3 drops rapidly down to a maximum of f5.9 which severely cuts the amount of light entering the camera and so requires either a slower shutter speed ( = unsharpness due to camera shake) or higher ISO's ( = more image noise).
On some compact digital models, setting the resolution lower to, say, 5MP (still more than enough for almost every purpose) improves matters but it doesn't seem to on the three Panasonic models I own.
