As everyone else has said, a bigger sensor means better IQ, especially in extreme situations. But the level of IQ which meets your needs depends also on what you do with your images. Most people are happy with P&S cameras (or bridge cameras or travel zoom cameras) because they view their images primarily (or entirely) on computer screens. No one can guarantee that a current bridge camera will produce acceptable images in your circumstances of use. But no one can offer that guarantee about a dlsr either. Every camera design has limits. You succeed as a photographer by understanding and working within your camera's limits.

In other words, a bridge camera might work for you. Or not. Short of field testing, there's no way to tell.
