Greetings to one and all from Indianapolis.

We are really look forward to seeing many of you here in Indy as you all visit while the Pacers enjoy home court ... all the way through! And of course we will be seeing many of you during race month..

Congrats to all of the contest winners! A great collection of images!

Big news from Canon: The 1D Mk II is shipping to the dealers. We are taking care of everyone as fast as can so please be patient...quantities aren't what we had hoped for. Available from is a firmware update for the EOS-1Ds. The update is to version 1.0.3. The update and more information is available from:

The firmware will update the EOS-1Ds to v1.0.3 and provide the following:
1. Storage media with capacities in excess of 2GB are now correctly recognized at their full capacity after being formatted in the camera.

Epson has been shipping the new 4000 printer and our list is close to the end so waits shouldn't be too long.

I have a special on Hitachi 2 Gb Microdrive at $269.00.

I am getting lots of great reviews on the D2H in the field and they are in stock with a special SS price. 200-400 and 17-55 lenses are still a bit tight but all other glass is in stock and ready to roll.

We now have MAC extended warrantees on pro gear. A VERY good value!

The AquaTech DV-3 splash housing for the EOS-1D, 1DS, and 1DmkII is in stock and the water shooters are loving them. Call us for pricing. Of course all of the AquaTech Sports Shields are ready in good supply.

I still have some more of the Monaco EX Color/ OptixXR Bundle to calibrate and profile you monitor, printer and scanner for a SS special of $339.000.

Thanks as always to everyone and have a great spring.
