What Iso are you using? A high Iso will cause the photos to become grainy...

It is set on "H 1.0". Is that high?

I have to leave my computer right now. Will check back in later to see if you've answered. Thank you!

H 1.0 is an Iso of 1600 which is high...
Use a setting of L1.0 which is an Iso of 100..

Will try that. Thank you!

Try to use as low an Iso as you can, adjust the Iso up only in low light situations..
