Penn Camera's News & Notes
By Jeff Snyder

The DC area is a bit up in the air these days...Let's see, will the MLB decide to move the Montreal Expos to the Nation's Capitol? (YES PLEASE we deserve Baseball)...

Will we have a new regime in the White House starting in January 05, we'll see...?

Well one things a sure bet...on September 12th, Joe Gibbs will walk onto the turf of FEDEX Field for the Redskins home opener, and you'll be able to hear 90,000+ roar for miles...So take a seat and sit tight, it looks to be a very exciting Fall!

The excitement continues beyond the field ...

Speaking of Football season ... Make sure that you are fully protected with AquaTech Sports Rain Shields. These are hands down, the finest in climate protection for your gear! Ask anyone on the field next to you if they're happy with their AquaTech's ... Stop being jealous of the shooter next to you, get your's today...

Canon EOS-20D
Canon's announcement of their new EOS-20D camera is very exciting. We had a quick sneak peek a few weeks ago. Looks and feels like the 10D, maybe a bit smaller. Faster focusing ... Plus the announcement of the new 580EX Flash, Plus a few new lenses: 10-22 f3.5-4.5, 17-85 f4.5-5.6 IS, 18-55 f3.5-5.6 - These are ALL available to be ordered NOW. We hope to see the 20D's begin to arrive sometime in the next 30 Days...

Nikon has been QUIET....Hopefully this is the calm before the storm? D2H's and D70's are still HOT, flying off the shelves as fast as they arrive. Nikon's D2H firmware upgrade program has been very successful, so if you still haven't already upgraded your cameras, you can do so here: All the new D2H's that are purchased now, have already been upgraded! We hope to also see the new 200 f2 VR-SW and the TC17E-II 1.7X converter from Nikon in the next 30-45 Days.

Fuji's Pictrography Digital Printers are still regarded as one of the finest printers on the market! We have phenomenal pricing on the printers as well as all the supplies in every size you'll ever need.

Monaco's OPTIX now has a Cash Back Rebate program in effect through 12/31/04 ... Learn more here:

Now that we're entering the last quarter of 2004, start to think about end of the year purchases, you need that tax write off! If your company is about to release funding for new gear, make sure to contact me directly. We gladly accept purchase orders from approved companies.

Have you seen the Crumpler line of Computer/Camera Backpacks yet? These are a new innovative way of carrying your gear! We'll have a variety in stock very soon! Check out, Brian's Hot Tub .

And finally ... Please remember always to check the online store ( on a regular basis for our Specials. They change throughout the month, so take advantage of theses specials to save some $$$$$...
