    How are they coming out funky? Are you pressing halfway to focus before committing to the shot?

    Like izzypizzy mentioned half-pressing the camera button focuses the shot then press it fully to finally commit to the picture you want.

    There are some optimal settings I have found to improve the image:
    AF Mode - Normal
    White Balance - Automatic
    Image Effect - None
    Contrast - High
    Saturation - High
    Sharpness - High
    EV - 0
    ISO - 50
    Metering - Center Weighted
    Photo Quality - High
    Wide Dynamic Range - On
    Photo Resolution - 5M (2560x1920)
    Anti-Shaking - On

    Of course the above settings are considered "optimal" for amateur users pending you also have the time to set all of the above settings before taking the picture. Unfortunately, at the moment each time you close and re-open the camera all settings reset.

    I know nothing about photography, but I was under the impression that a higher ISO setting was better?

    High ISO isn't better, but it is necessary to capture a picture in low light situations, if the lightning is good, the lower the ISO, the better, because the higher the ISO, the more noise is introduced into the image

    the best advice i can give is to practice and experiment with the camera settings to get an understanding of what feature does what to the photo. I can read all day long about the options, but until can actually see what happens i really wont understand it.
