A camera phone..an old 35mm film SLR...an entry level level DSLR. It does not matter which camera you get as an photographer as long as it takes images. At the further end of the Photography spectrum when you have clients and commissions for business or projects that require production into different formats that's when you need a pro-camera.
Photography is subjective so any image is based either on how you see it or what you want it to project and any camera will do that. I have taken shots on an Iphone 4 that have had better comments than my pro pictures, go figure but what I did know with each of my shots where that I was happy with composition...happy with exposure and image quality and it was what I imagined it in my own minds eye.
I would advise that you spend your money on an entry level DSLR and get 3 okay lens or 1 great lens to get the shots you want.
