I think changeable lenses are the main thing the OP needs for experimenting . So long as you can change lenses and have some kind of viewfinder (even if it's just a ground glass or an LCD) that shows you what the lens is seeing, you can experiment with optics and lighting.

And if you are truly original, you might take some interesting photos, as Moholy-Nagy did, for example.

Ah, good old Laszlo...

Judged by academic standards, his photographs were outrageously bad. Inevitably, the normal subject of the picture was half lost in a maze of apparently accidental forms, distorted by unfamiliar perspectives, and framed as though the photographer had not finally decided what his subject really was.

-Sounds like some C&C that I received from the sages at DPR for my UWA work.

BTW, I still think you need a DSLR so that you can see properly. Even the $3000 Sony is a bit dodgy when it comes to VF.
