Re: First camera investment, Advice and discussion wanted :)

Some very nice pictures with the Lumia, Pablo. I would think that the next step up would be one of the ~$400 bridge cameras which do almost everything pretty well and have almost all of the bells and whistles of the mirrorless and DSLRs. I used a Canon SX-40 for a couple of years and still use it often despite owning an Olympus OMD-E5 and Sony A6000, both excellent choices at over twice the price of a bridge camera.

You can see that my pictures from 2012 and 2103 with the SX-40 are technically almost as good as the newer cameras, so don't be misled that you need a big sensor. Many manufacturers sell bridge cameras which are as good or better than my older SX-40.
