What happened!

Very often, when I go to do tours, I am asked to take stills as well.  I have always use the Canon G6 with the Canon wide angle converter.  The shots have always come out great.  I have no idea what has happened.  I use it on bracketing and then combine through Photomatix.  Can any one tell me why my shots are now so grainy?  Is there something wrong with the camera?  I do not believe that I have changed any of my settings.  Can someone give me an idea where to start looking for the problem?

Grain or white noise is mostly a function of ISO settings.  Using ISO 3200 (increased sensor sensitivity)  in a well lighted room will generate white noise [film grain].  ISO 100 should produce less noisy image.

Just a thought - if all else fails.. reset the camera settings back to factory defaults.  Then reset the camera to the values you need.

The ISO is what I checked first.  It is at 200.  I am going to reset everything and see how that goes.  Thanks for taking a look for me.
