Dumb Question on Ink Colors

I have been printing extensively for a long time on an amateur basis to fund my photo hobby. Over time I have gone through two HP Z3100s and have now downsized to an Epson P800.

But, thinking through the technology, when our cameras only capture 3 colors, why do we need printers with 8, 12, or more colors?? Do we just need more intelligent print heads?
