Happy Holidays & a BIG Sports Shooter NEW YEAR to all! We hope that everyone had a health & safe Christmas/Hanukkah season.

Are you ready for some FOOTBALL? Can you say SUPER BOWL? The "Penn Super Bowl Lounge" will be in full swing again this year in Houston's Reliant Stadium. We'll be up and ready to help you out in the media trailers at Reliant Stadium on Thursday 01/29 before Super Bowl weekend look for the Penn Camera ~ Sports Shooter banner outside the trailer, and stop on in! I'll have plenty of Penn Camera ~ Sports Shooter credential holders and lanyards for all the accredited photographers. If you're going to be there and there's something that you'd like us to bring, holler at me...

Look for many new product announcements over the next few months, especially as we get closer to the PMA (Photo Marketing Association) show February. As we get information on new gear, I'll surely pass it along.

Here's a few new items:

--Sensor Swab III, a larger Sensor Swab for cleaning larger CCD's.....Coming in January

-- Microtech's BIG announcement: NEW - Microtech XP CF Xtreme II Pro card 40x Series *Sustained write speeds reaching 6.6MB per second *No special firmware needed from camera manufacturer to enable raw performance, will see performance gains on both Nikon and Canon Pro SLR platforms shooting either Raw or JPEG *Using same commercial design and construction that our current 22x Pro version carries, SLC construction *This card is designed to be one of the most robust Microtech CF card products to date *The previous 22x design carries a field failure rate of less than .16% (one out of every 600) real figures are far less.

*Pro users will achieve 15% - 25% increase in performance of this card - this performance will vary depending on the camera system and file type shot and stored, as well as type of frame mode - single or continuous mode.

* The pro user will receive the same pro-active, unmatched technical support from Pexagon.

* Delivery of these cards will begin in early January---Stay tuned!

--Nikon's D2H's have been coming in on a regular basis, and we hope to have all of our orders up to date by the end of 2003 … SB800's ENEL4 Batteries, and the WT1A Transmitters too!

--Canon's EOS1D cameras have been increasingly difficult to come by, with speculation of a new product just around the corner. We have more 1D's on order, so if you're interested in one, call me, and I'll check stock.

--The Media for Kodak, Fuji and Olympus printers are always in stock, at very competitive prices. If your company uses one of these printers, and you don't already purchase paper and ribbons from us, you should. Call me for quotations.

--Apacer's new CP200 Disc Steno's have arrived. This is the new generation unit, which is "Multi-Session"...Back up your memory cards directly to CD while on the go... Battery operated, AC Adapter included and USB 2.0 too! Sports Shooter Introductory price: $269

Stay warm ---
