Penn Camera Survives Isabel
By Jeff Snyder

Phewwwwww …Hurricane Isabel has come and gone, leaving many of us picking up the pieces …from tree limbs to roof's to destroyed camera gear from wind and rains (except those with AquaTech's). It's been quite the few weeks here in the Nation's capitol, and it's great to be back in the office with POWER!

First off … No, I do not have any idea when the D2H's will be shipped.
Here's what we have in the hopper for the Fall so far: NIKON --- The much anticipated Nikon D2H, its WiFi accessories, the new lenses 10.5mm f2.8G, 17-55 f2.8G AFS, 200-40 f4 G/AFS/VR, and the new SB800 Flash are all coming SOON! We're accepting orders now, for delivery as soon as Nikon begins shipping.

CANON --- The new Canon Digital Rebel kit with 18-55 lens are now in stock, as well as the new 55-200 f4-5.6 … It's never too early to start holiday shopping …Canon will have a new Cash Back Rebate program beginning October 1st, stay tuned for details, or contact me after the 1st.

LEXAR --- Lexar's new 1GB 40X card (replacing the 32X version) should be available shortly. All of the current Lexar WA High Speed cards are in stock!

DELKIN --- NEW from Delkin: The new Delkin CardBus CompactFlash Adapter is a 32-bit PCMCIA CardBus CF adapter. Because this new adapter uses the high-speed 32-bit CardBus interface it can deliver transfer speeds of 5 MB/sec (compared to the 1.2 MB/sec of the normal PCMCIA interface). This would no doubt provide welcome relief to notebook computer users and photographers 'in the field' who often have to put up with slow image transfer performance. The CF32A is a PCMCIA Type II CardBus card and supports Compact Flash Type I or II including the IBM MicroDrive. The current Compact Flash adapter that you are currently using is 16-bit. These are ONLY for Windows platforms at this time. We hope to have these available very soon! Don't forget Delkin's 320 & 640mb Pro CF Cards too!

RAY-O-VAC --- Coming Soon …Ray-O-Vac's NEW I-C3, a "revolutionary new rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride battery & charging system". They are 2000ma AA rechargeable batteries, that are supplied with a 15 minute charger! The "Kit" is supplied with a Charger and 2 Batteries. Extra batteries will be available as well. For a limited time, the "Kit", will be supplied with a "mail in coupon" for a car charging adapter. This is great for recharging on the road. The "Kit" Charger with two batteries will be about $39, and $20 for another 4 AA I-C3 batteries.
