Any actual camera will improve the outcome.
An good entry level camera can be found for under $200, you want one that can take the next picture very quickly, which rules out the lowest price range.
The Cannon Powershot line has some good choices.
Nikon also has some good entry level cameras.
Some cameras just feel better in hand, this is highly personal, but if you decide to get a camera I'd go somewhere you can hold them.
If a real camera is not in your plans, you want tons of light. Take tons of shots. For every good picture there are often 10 blurry ones.
