Check out the sample pix at pbase:

They all seem to have bad exposure with a really off color cast.

No?

if you want to combata consistant under exposure try using ev (exposure compensation) and boost it up to maybe +2/3ev.

other thing is it could be ur metering mode. i didnt actually have a look at ur metering mode but u could have it on average which is causing ur subjects to under expose. try a centre weighted metering to try get exposure good on subjects. if ur cam has exposure lock, lock the exposure when it looks good on main subject but watch not to blow out the sky.

the color cast would prob be a result of using the incorrect white balance setting. eg if outdoors use sunny or cloudy etc. the other thing it could be is the combination of different light temps. i notice you are sometimes using fill flash inteh sun light. the sunlight and ur flash have differnet light temps meaning the give different colur casts. now if you have both light types your camera can only correct one type of light so its prob corecting levels for sunlight and then ur flash is changin the dynamics of the light casuing the funny cast. personally i didnt really see any colour casts tht looked miles out.

se how u go

To be honest with you, the EX-Z110 is a budget Casio Camera, and is not very good. Therefore, you should not expect too much from this camera.

Z110's picture quality is below average, and unless you are on a tight budget, I suggest you upgrade to the EX-Z120, which is much better overall.

i had a quick look at the cam on another site and it seems like it should still be doing a decent job at spitting out suitable images. I think this is just a case of maybe a little user error. I thik just use the cam a little more and get used to the cam and how it responds in different situations.

if you wouldnt mind posting more detailed problems in refernce to individual photos we can see if we can narrow down any errors if any

For an economy camera, these Z-110 photos, are pretty good considering these lowered resolution sample photos. Yes, they need some post processing, but they are very recoverable.
