i borrowed one for the pictures on my side. Here are some real benefit
that's very hard for regular camera to match:

excellent close-up capability. if u take a shot of a model from a
distance at a high angle, it looks like a toy. but if u take it from
close up at a very low angle, the picture gives an illusion that u are a
1.7 m tall photographer taking a shot of a 18 m tall MS. Or a 200 m long
batter ship.

High equilivalent ISO/ASA. Most model shots are taken indoors. Without
professional lighting, most photos looks dim and washed-out. Most digital

satisfactory lighting can be achieved with indoor lighting.

Of course all these can be achieved with film camera, but it would cost a
lot of money and a bit of skills, not one would do with a $50 point-and-
shoot. I used to be sketical of modern photographic gadgetry, but I am
totally sold on the digital camera (for low resolution work such as web
