By Jeff Snyder

If you're wandering the Super Bowl XXXVIII Media Trailer Compound in a few days, just look for the Penn Camera / Sports Shooter banner … What will you find? You'll be immediately connected to other members chillin' in the trailer, checking out some of the latest gear and gadgets that will make your job easier … Please stop in.

Let's see, what's new, what's on the horizon … PMA (Photo Marketing Association) will hold it's annual show in Las Vegas in a few weeks. As we get word of new products, we'll let you know! So stayed tuned…

As many of you have been learning by surfing the Internet…Canon will be formally announcing the replacement to the ever-popular EOS-1D camera on Super Bowl Saturday. No leaks of info yet, so stay tuned and I'll be sure to report from Houston! I've been getting calls and emails daily with questions regarding the availability of the new Canon camera, and yes, we are accepting "pre-orders" now. Contact me for details; I'll be back from Houston on Tuesday after the BIG GAME!

Canon EOS10D's have still been incredibly popular. The new Canon SD10 pocket sized digital camera is the perfect companion to your pro camera. It's so cool, and in four color … Canon's TRIPLE Rebate program can save you big $ too!
