Spring Time Sports Shooter Specials From Samy's
By Louis Feldman

Remember at the end of Wilt Chamberlain's magnificent career he remade himself from a scoring machine to a rebounding monster. It was what the Lakers needed at the time and what helped them win the NBA Championship in 1972 (21 rpg and only 14 ppg) ...

It looks like Shaq has finally figured it out ... rebounding and defense is what will lead the '04 Lakers to the NBA Championship. Let Kobe, Payton and Malone score and the Big Guy can clog the lane, sweep the board and throw down an occasional dunk for fun.

Lakers in 5 over the Pacers. (Sorry Jody!)

On to Samy's Camera Sports Shooter Specials:

We have a great deal on Quantum Turbo 2 x 3 batteries. For Sports Shooter readers: $399.

Another Sports Shooter Special for the month: Nikon D1x with a Sigma 24mm - 70mm 2.8 zoom lens for $2995.

The HOTTEST professional camera on the market is the Canon EOS 1D Mark II and Samy's is one of the U.S.'s top distributors of this great new tool for the news and sports photographer. We are receiving shipments regularly, so give us a call to check on current inventory and pricing. We will be competitive with anyone!

Samy's also has one of the largest inventories of camera bags and cases in the country: Lowepro, Domke, Lightware, Pelican, Tenba, Tamrac ... and the coolest products at the moment: Kata Bags. With baseball season in full swing (pardon the pun!) and the Summer Olympic Games in Athens, Greece just 80 or so days away, a nice equipment backpack or roller is what you need to lessen the stress and strain of carrying that long glass. We also have a full line of handy long lens bags from Domke and Lowepro to help carry AND protect that 300, 400 or 600mm lens.

We also carry the widest range of storage media around ... from the 4 gigabyte Lexar cards to the new SanDisk Extreme line.

Also remember that Samy's Camera is a fully authorized Apple Reseller. The recently announced upgraded PowerBook line is now available in several configurations (SuperDrive or ComboDrive?) ... whether you want to compact 12 inch model or the popular 15 inch or the really cool 17 inch (yes, size DOES matter!) give us a call for very competitive pricing for Sports Shooter readers.

We also stock the full line of Epson Photo Printers, from the budget Photo 825 to the top of the line Photo 2200, we have them all in stock!

While Samy's is the leader in new professional still, video and lighting gear, come by and check out our collection of used cameras, lenses and accessories. Whether you're looking for a mint Nikon F2 or a collectable Leica, check us out!

Father's Day is just around the corner and Samy's Camera is a great place to look for that interesting and unique gift for Dad. Digital point & shoots have always been popular gift ideas and the Canon Digital Elph is something that any Dad would love to have. Add to that a really cool underwater housing and he has the complete vacation photography kit! All of this is available at Samy's!

How about this for a really different Dad's Day gift: A pinhole camera or Holga! We have all been reading and seeing what members have been photographing with these very simple "toy" cameras, so how about getting one for Dad to play around with? We carry several pinhole cameras as well as Holgas.

Samy's will again be a part of what Bert calls THE coolest photography event of the year, the annual Workshop and Luau in November. If you're in LA please drop by one of our 5 stores downtown LA, Pasadena, Santa Barbara, Venice and the new one in Orange County check out our inventory and say hello!
