Default olympus C730UZ - indoor portraits

Hi just bought c730UZ and tried to make indoor portrait photos. Unfortunately all photos became very noisy(comparing with test images i saw in the review) I tried different combinations: full auto, with/without flash, different ISO, different apperture, tried in portrait mode, night mode, image quality tiff/SHQ.

The quality of resulting pictures was always the same - grainy and blurry.
The camera was on tripod.

Can you say, please, what I did wrong?

Get your camera warm and use the pixel mapping function. Keep PM until the noise goes away. Worked for me - see here:

Blurry could be not focussing properly.

You have the noise that Steve has talked about. Run the gamit with Steve's suggestions. Have you tried outdoor shots?

PM sometimes works and sometimes not. It took me 4 or 5 attempts whilst the cam was hot.

I also tried Oly - they were useless.

This pic was taken using the Oly 730. Apart from heavy compression/resizing for quick up-loads it's much as the original:

How does it compare. Would you be happy with it, because that's as good as the 730 gets even after hot PM.
