Filters are very important in photopgraphy and are used for a variety of reasons.  In B&W, they change the tones of colored objects, in color pictures, they adjust for the warmth or coolness of the light, and the many special effects filters are dramatic in both B&W and color pictures.  And with submini cameras they are even more important to help produce dramatic results.

Some subminis use round filters -- like most larger cameras, but others use special slip-on filters.  Still others, have built-in sliding filters.  

Whenever using filters, it's important to compensate for any light loss caused by the filter.  Some cameras will do this automatically, but most don't.

Since many subminis use tiny round filters, they may be difficult or impossible to find.  Step-up rings might provide a solution.  That way you can get newer-style filters on your older camera.
