New Stylish Photo Vest at Samy's

The Botte Vest
Samy's Camera is now carrying the Botte Vest, which I think is a perfect fit for those news and Sports Shooters out there looking for not just functional apparel that will carry your lenses, strobes, battery packs and other small pieces of gear ... but look STYLISH as well.

Designed by former NYPD detective Jon Botte (and a Leica aficionado!) and his brother Mike, the Botte Vest has a total of 11 pockets, eight that expand and are lined for soft fleece (how many times have you thrown a converter or lens in a pocket without a back cap???). The large external pockets feature unique leather flaps that are secured by Velcro (c) providing your gear with security and protection from the elements.

In addition to the leather flaps on the outside pockets, leather appointments have been placed on the shoulders, neck and lower back of the vest for added protection and comfort.

Drop by our Fairfax store and check out this new, cool vest!

Samy's has Nikon's new D70s in stock and ready for delivery. Please call one of our sales reps to ask about current pricing and shipping details. We also have a good supply of Nikon's new D2Hs as well as the D2Hx. For pricing for members, please call us right away!

Epson announced a couple of printers that should be of interest to photographers. For those looking to make large prints, the new Epson Stylus Pro 4800 and the Stylus Pro 9800 are probably what you're looking for. The 4800 features a unique 17-inch wide media design while the 9800 is Epson's latest wide format 44-inch printer. Both the 4800 and 9800 feature Epson's new 8-color ink system ... Epson's UltaChrome K3 ... the new system features three level black ink combined with eight new color pigments that the company says will deliver vibrant, realistic colors. Both printer have a maximum resolution is 2880 x 1440 dpi. Call Samy's today to find out availability and pricing info.
