Spring Specials From Roberts Distributors
By Jody Grober

Welcome to all from Indy. It has been good to see so many shooters coming in for the NBA Playoffs and the Indy 500 and I hope to see many more of you as the playoffs continue and F-1 rolls in.

Finally, the Canon EOS-1D MK II is coming in and we are working through the list fairly and quickly. The new 28-300 and 70-300DO have also started coming in. I am still on a list for the 28-300, but I should be able to ship open stock on the 70-300DO. Everything else with Canon as usual is in great supply. The new Canon Digital Photo Professional software is available for download at the URL below. You will need a serial number from a 1D, 1D Mk or 1DS.

Of course you can always get the latest firmware upgrades for Canon at

The new Pelican carry-on with wheels.
The memory deal of the month is from Hitachi. The new Hitachi Microdrive is dependable and affordable. For the week of June 6-13 get a 2 Gb microdrive for $199.97 after a $30.00 instant rebate and a $30.00 mail-in rebate. I also have 4 Gb units at a SportsShooter special of $448.00.

From Lexar I have the 2 Gb 40x on special for $399.97 after a $40.00 mail-n rebate through June 30. One per customer.

It is time to plan for workshops. I hope to see many of you at the Sports Shooter Workshop & Luau later this year and space is filling up for Rich Clarkson's Sport Photography Workshop so if you interested you better reserve your space soon.

I will have the new Pelican carry-on with wheels in stock next week.
Sports Shooter special for the 1514 with dividers is $168.00.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and always keep in mind that the cameras don't take the photos ... people do. Have fun!
