January News & Specials from Samy's Camera
By Louis Feldman

The BIG news at Samy's Camera is the opening of our new store in Orange County!

Our new 14,000 square foot store is under the very capable leadership of manager Alan Bridgewater and is located at 3309 Bristol St. in Santa Ana, just off the 405 Freeway (telephone: 714 - 557 - 9400).

HOLD THE PRESSES (or should that be HOLD THAT BANDWIDTH?) --- Samy's Cameras has just received the new Transcend 2.2 gigabyte (yes, I said 2.2 gigabyte!) CompactFlash Type II Cards. I am offering these to Sports Shooter readers at the unbelievable price of $195.00!

We are receiving a steady supply of Nikon's new professional digital SLR, the D2H. Give me a call to check on currently pricing and delivery. ALSO ... the new 10.5mm ultra-wide and 200 - 400mm zoom lenses are trickling in. And ... Nikon D100's are in stock!

With the photography community buzzing with the Internet leak of a spec sheet (in French!) on Canon's yet-to-be-officially-announced replacement for the EOS-1D ... it has me thinking that some of our Sports Shooter regulars might have some exciting news to add to the fire after returning home from Houston and the Super Bowl over the weekend! (And yes, we are taking orders!) Canon's high - resolution camera the 1Ds is in stock, as well as the 10D and the new Digital Rebel. Canon is also still running a BIG rebate on their lenses. Call me for specifics.

We have been running a Sports Shooter Special on Lexar CompactFlash Cards on ... and guess what? I will continue it! Check for the Samy's Specials ... or call me at our Fairfax store. Make sure you say "I read Sports Shooter!"

SHOP 'TILL YOU DROP! From Friday January 29 through the Saturday the 31st, we're having a clearance sale at our Fairfax location. The whole 4th floor warehouse must be cleared out! So come shop 'til you drop from 10am to 6pm!

The photography and sports community lost an outstanding person and human being in Sports Illustrated's V.J. Lovero, who passed away earlier this month. I along with hundreds attended the memorial services for V.J. and we were all quiet moved by the outpouring of love and memories ... many recounted by Darryl Miho's remembrance written for I hope as many of the Sports Shooter Community can turn out for the benefit card and sports memorabilia show Feb. 7 at Frank & Son Collectible Show facilities in Southern California. Go to for details! See you there.
