I am getting frustrated with the limitations of my iPhone camera and my girlfriend's point-and-shoot. I want to purchase my first serious camera and learn how to take better photos.
I don't think the picture quality difference would affect me much, since I have only used point-and-shoot cameras. I am considering the dSLR because the controls might make it easier to switch settings quickly. I am also considering a Micro 4/3 or Sony Nex, because the small size would make it easier to have it with me and just take more photos.
Which would be better for learning?
