March Madness Specials from Roberts Distributors
By Jody Grober

Greeting to everyone from Indy ... home of the unbelievably wealthy Patton Manning…this business is from another universe…and no Big Ten in the final eight…going home with my tail between my legs …

I know you all have a lot going on during March Madness and the end of Spring Training and all so I will make this short and sweet …

Nikon…fantastic new rebate program, perhaps odd in structure, but the savings are huge, especially when purchasing multiple rebated lenses. I am proud to say that we have D2H bodies in stock, so mention SS get our special SS price. 200-400 reviews are coming in they are stellar…I am just about through my list so call us up and I may be able to hook you up sooner than later.

Canon … Canon rebate program starts on April 1st and I will have more info then…The EOS-1d Mk II will be here soon so settle down now….the reviews of the prototypes have been very inspiring…of additional good news is the E-ttl II which seems to make it very difficult to miss any shot with a 550EX…that's good news!

Lexar…is trying to clear out the warehouse for the 80X roll out so I am continuing and sweetening my Lexar special…WHILE SUPPLIES LAST…256/40-$62.00, 512/40-$139.00, 1Gb/40-$249.00, and 1Gb/40-$479.00.

Hitachi 2 Gb Microdrive for only $249.00 while supplies last.

Kodak…has announced a new body with the same chip as the SLR/n but it takes Canon EF glass…"the SLR/c". Also from Kodak is a firmware update (v4.5.7) is available for the Kodak DCS Pro SLR/n at:

For people in the local Indiana region. We will be having a color management seminar on April 16 & 17. Click here for details. In conjunction with the seminar I will have a special on the Monaco EX ColorXR Bundle (700-007) for calibrating your monitor, printer and scanner at an unbelievable price…call me.

Clarity Fog Eliminator
Roberts is pleased to add one of the finest lens care lines available to our product offering: Clarity lens cleaner spray and micro fiber cloths and Clarity Fog Eliminator. The product was originally requested by a photographer client with a major sports magazine, and when we saw the performance we readily agreed. SS introductory special is the lens kit, spray, cloth and towelettes, for $4.97.

Aquatech…The DV-3 is in stock and looks to be a very hot item. Click here for pricing. Click here for specs. Also all of the great Aquatech Sports Shields are in stock in good quantities. For those of you who bought a Rebel Digital as a lightweight backup we will soon have eyepieces for them.

Epson 4000 printers will start shipping this week. My SS special will be $1749.00, but the demand is large so get on the list soon.

Leaf America has posted a very good video on medium format digital photography that you can view at this link: click here. It should serve as a good primer for those wanting to know how medium format might fit into your editorial, feature and portrait work.

Well, keep it fun and thanks as always!!
