The short answer is no.
The slightly longer answer is no, but with higher spec cameras you will get more options to adjust the camera settings and you may get better quality components such as the sensor which can result in a better quality image.
If you know nothing about photography, going out and buying an expensive camera with all the gadgets and gizmos will be even more confusing. Of course if you want to pursue photography as something more than just taking snapshots then buying a camera that will allow you to learn and experiment with more advanced features, as you learn about them, might be a good idea. We’ll look at the different type of cameras and the advantages and disadvantages they have at a later date.
Think about what you want to achieve too. If all you want is a pocket sized compact camera for taking on holiday and to family gatherings, then don’t expect to get all the features of the larger cameras with interchangeable lenses for instance. If you want to print your images out and frame them then you might need a slightly higher spec camera to give you enough image quality to get large prints. More on that later.
With digital camera prices dropping all the time and technology advancing at the rate it is, you can still get excellent quality cameras that can produce great quality images for very budget friendly amounts.
There’s a good article over at the Digital Photography School Blog that gives you some help in picking the right digital camera for you. Just remember that with the rate digital cameras are becoming more high spec, any recommendations may not take into account the latest cameras.
