I had purchased a Sony DSC H7 a few years back, this camera was advertised as a semi-professional camera by the manufacturer. It has 8.1 megapixels and has a Carl-Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens, these specifications might appear less compared with the other cameras available now, but this was among the more expensive products offered by this manufacturer back then. However, the pictures that it takes are not good enough. The picture quality appears to have deteriorated lately, the pictures appear to have noise all over, inspite of selecting the proper mode. The pictures it captures of people and their faces are rather disappointing; my BlackBerry 8900 takes far better of the same people in the same lighting. I plan to use the camera mostly to take pictures of people and some landscapes at times. Please suggest a camera brand or a camera model that is good at capturing images of people.
