Swingin' Samy's Summer Specials
By Louis Feldman

Cards, everyone is talking about cards.

Not baseball trading cards. Or blackjack. But COMPACT FLASH CARDS!

After SanDisk raised the bar with their *very* popular Extreme line of professional grade compact flash cards earlier this year, everyone has been scrambling to match them for speed and pricing. Now Lexar has finally delivered the goods ... their new line of 80x compact flash cards. Samy's has received the first shipments of the new Lexar 80x 1 gig and 512 meg cards. Give us a call for competitive pricing for readers of Sports Shooter.

Canon 1D Mark II bodies are still trickling in, so please call to check on our current inventory on this hot camera.

Rumors are bouncing around about a new camera from Nikon (could it be a D2X???) almost as much as the LA Times sports section rumors on where Shaq and Kobe will be playing next season! In the mean time, we have the Nikon D2H and the 10D available and we hope to see very soon the just-announced 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR Nikkor telephoto lens. This super - fast telephoto should be very popular with sports photographers wanting to stop the action and still maintain your image quality. This is the perfect lens for basketball, ice hockey, gymnastics, figure staking and prep football.

Samy's also carries the largest inventory of camera bags, rolling cases, backpacks and shipping cases. If you're looking for products from Domke, Pelican, Lowpro, Tamrac, Tenba or Lightware (especially the "Jack Gruber Special" ... the Lightware Digital Backpack) ... give us a call or stop by.

We are also the top rental house in the western U.S. for studio and portable strobes and other gear. If you have a shoot out on the beach ... or in the middle of a wheat field, you need power and maybe the new Dyna-Lite XP1100 AC power supply is what you need. This baby can power your Dyna-Lite M1000 pack for over 200 full pops!

For specs on this, check out Dyna-Lite's web site:

We also carry the full line of Profoto, Hensel and Lumedyne battery - powered strobe systems.

To get an idea of what Samy's carries in our stories and what is available in the rental department, check out our web site at:

As the LA Dodgers begin its annual fade in the west, it makes me feel good that I'm a Yankee fan!

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!
