comment Will filters help me get better colors in my digital photographs of my paintings?
This doesn't really answer the specific question about filters. Could you please edit to talk about filters (i.e. whether or not you think they are worthwhile or will help).

@MichaelClark That is true, for DSLRs, but I believe (considering that there is no mention of a separate lens in the question) that the OP is asking about P&S cameras, where it is still very feasible to have a larger sensor, while still having decent zoom range.

@MichaelClark True. But in general I think that the OP does not seem to be technically minded on this issue (as in probably no interested in the artistic side of things) I would say that larger sensor/aperture is a safe bet as being the best option. This is why I left the creative things until last.

@MichaelClark I would argue that it doesn't matter because everything you get (maybe except for size of the camera) from a smaller sensor/aperture you can get from a larger one as well.
