    Hey folks. I'm writing a book on the Treo 600 smartphone, and I'd
    like to include pictures of the phone, as well as its various
    accessories. I'd love to learn how to do the photography myself,
    rather than simply to outsource this to a professional. However, I'd
    first like to ask this group what kind of financial (and temporal)
    commitment I might be stepping into!

    For example, I'd like to be able to take pictures that are of the
    quality found in this review:

    http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/minolta/dimage_a1-review/

    Here, the product is sitting on a glistening white surface with
    nothing in the background. For all intensive purposes, it appears as
    if it is floating, with an ever-so-slight shadow here and there. This
    kind of image is exactly what I'm seeking.

    Is this something I can accomplish with a standard digicam (I was
    considering using the DiMAGE A1, coincidentally), and a small amount
    of studio equipment? Or will I unquestionably have to purchase an
    expensive lighting kit and fancy accessories that might just make this
    one-time shoot better for the pros? Your advice is greatly
    appreciated.

    Thanks very much,
    -Jeff

  2. Are you going to just keep posting questions without reading answers from
    earlier posts? It's kind of rude, you know.
