Ac adapter question

Hi again,

I may feel silly in a minute here, I think it is one of those DUH questions. Here is goes anyway. K-X manual page 43. There is a camera hooked up to adapters and finally to an electric outlet. Why would you need your camera hooked up to electric in this way? Thanks

Product shots in a studio setting, really long exposures like star trails or anything that requires the camera to be on for a long time. Would work well with PK tether.

mostly in backyard were an AC source is readily available.
different body, but can be applied in like manner.
