Need that professional looking image
Mar 3, 2013

The first digital camera I owned was a Canon Powershot A40 and at that time was a pretty good camera at the time.  For a good number of years now I have owned a Canon SD880 which is a great camera.  Picture quality was solid and I love the panorama feature.

However now I am looking to obtain professional looking shots from a new camera.  Is there any way to obtain that kind of image from a non SLR?  I wanted to try to avoid having to purchase expensive lenses and all.  Would the Canon SX40 or SX50 have the ability to give me that kind of shot?  To see an example of the kind of shot I am looking for please take a look at this page and the photos on it...

Another example of the quality of the photo I'm looking for is here:

And here:

If you do have to recommend a DSLR which one would it be and which lens would I need that would make the investment relatively affordable?  Thank you.
