Well the New Year is off to a smashing start ...

The inaugural activities are over here in Washington and "our" Washington Nationals are gearing up for spring training.

Next stop, Jacksonville for Super Bowl XXXIX.

For all the credentialed photographers in Jacksonville for the Super Bowl, Penn Camera's trailer in the media center at Alltel Stadium will be open from Thursday 02/03 in the afternoon through game time on Sunday. Please stop in to say hello, and for refreshments anytime. I'll have all of your last minute needs, Lexar cards, batteries, Gitzo/Bogen Monopods, plus much more!

I'm thrilled to announce that Penn Camera has been named as the EXCLUSIVE East Coast dealer for THINK TANK PHOTO PRODUCTS. We're accepting orders immediately for the entire line up, which can be seen here: Once you see the design of their belt system, fanny packs and the ever so popular Airport Addicted backpack, you'll say, "Wow, that's why everyone's so excited about ThinkTank".

I'll have all of the Think Tank gear at the Super Bowl for you to see and order, so be sure to stop in the Media Trailers at Alltel Stadium!

During the month of February, I'm happy to pass onto all verified members the same special that I'm offering at the Super Bowl on Think Tank gear and FREE UPS SHIPPING.

Canon's EOS1D-IIs camera has been getting incredible reviews. They've been coming in and flying out the door ... If you're in the market for this high end digital SLR, make sure to call me. The new 580EX Strobes are here too, which has been getting great reviews from our customers. All of the Canon ink jet printers, papers are in stock too!
