Kodak has been criticized for overly aggresive JPEG Compression in some of it's models (without giving the user any way to adjust it).
However, at normal print sizes (not magnified to 100% onscreen), you're probably not going to notice it. Also, the lighting conditions may have had something to do with it, too.
You do not have a small, medium, large option? I took a look at the EXIF data. I'm guessing it did something to reduce noise. It was a cloudy day and it used a shutter speed of 1/720 of a second.
