New models are just rubbish!

I've been looking for a new camera for ages now and still can't find one I
like! The problem isn't style or features or even price, it's the poor
quality images many cameras give that's the problem. I am used to 5MP or 6MP
photos taken by my Nikon D70, Canon EOS 10D, Digital Rebel and Canon
Powershot S50. The quality of these photos is there to see, sharp, clear
colourful and bright, bu the newer models with sensors having 12MP and
upwards are a joke! The noise level on these are beyond a joke. Who is going
to give up a 6MP camera which gives almost perfect, almost noise-free photos
and replace it with a 14MP piece of junk that is nowhere nearly as good as
the 6MP model? I think the answer to that question is "people who don't know
shit about digital photography"? This constant cramming of pixels onto a
sensor just to make it look better to the uneducated has to stop somewhere
surely? I tried the new Canon SX30 IS and the Nikon P500, took some samples
home with me and thought "you must be joking"! The images are so noisy and
unclear, yet my faithful (5MP) Canon S50 can leave it at the starting post!
The Nikon P500 was the worst though...'image quality is shockingly bad!
Okay, my D70 'is' an SLR after all, but it's 100% crop is a hell of a lot
cleaner than the P500, by a mile. When oh when are Canon, Nikon and co going
to get back ontrack and give us smaller MPs and less noisy images? I suppose
full-frame for all is just around the corner and we will soon have smaller
digicams with FF sensors in them, hence 'dealing' with the problem....'or
will they do exactly the same thing to FF sensors and overcrowd them too? I
suppose these companies prefer to sell crap to the unwitting public rather
than produce a model that would make a discerning photographer feel proud of
his work. Canon and Nikon have a lot to answer for!
