Try taking a photo without a card in the camera and see if the picture shown during instant review looks good. If it does, then try formatting your current card or using a different one.

I've seen similar when I forgot to format a card, the jpg thumbnail on the camera screen looked fine, you didn't see this until it got on the computer. My Lexar cards do that on the first image or two, so I waste a couple shots after formatting.

I tried it without the SD card and got the same results on the instant review. So I guess it is the camera.

Thanks for the help!
