EOS 450D blurred compared to Sony DSC-H5

I was reading a lot about Canon 450D camera, and to have better picture quality, finally decided to switch from normal digital cameras to SLR. So, at last I bought one with EF-S 18-55 IS kit.

Of course I've started to compare EOS 450D images with my previous camera Sony DSC-H5 which is nearly 2,5 years old.

I was really disappointed with quality of EOS pictures, especially picture taken with internal flash.
Here please find two pictures from both cameras:

Here are originals if someone likes:


Why EOS picture is so blurred? I've tried many times to get better quality, but unfortunately out of luck.
Could it be lens or hardware defect of 450D? Please advice?

Because I can't believe what normal digital camera can make better picture quality in compare to brand new SLR.

Thank you,
