By Jeff Snyder

It's just about Cherry Blossom time here in the Nation's Capitol, and Penn Camera is ready for a very exciting spring season, especially with Canon's EOS1D-Mark II and Nikon's D70 both just around the corner. Before you know it, the Ump will yell "Play Ball", the 1st pitch will be thrown with the MLB starts off another exciting season….So, take your seats, and get ready.

The Canon EOS1D-II is scheduled to begin shipping in late April, so if you haven't already contacted us about yours, please do so now, so we can make sure you are added to the list.

Nikon's D70 will be arriving any day now. The excitement surrounding this camera is beyond what I would have anticipated. The phones haven't stopped. This is the perfect back-up camera for any professional photographer!
