What camera(s) have you tried? and what aspects of the image are not
satisfiying? Color, detail, Distortions?

I frankly have not gon to great lengths photographing my images since
digital became "normal". Most of may art is digital in the end
anyway.  So I don't have any advice to give from great experience.
