Greetings to one and all from Indy!

News from Lexar is a new firewire compact flash reader that stacks and daisy changes four together downloading all four together and speeds close to twice that of traditional firewire. Combined with Photo Mechanic auto ingest it will really speed up you work flow. Should be available in a couple of weeks. Check out their web site for the firmware upgrade program.

The Sam Cranston's all new Camera Muzzle is in stock. Long awaited and worth it. Only $119.00 and even more silent then it predecessor.

My memory special of the month is the Kingston 512 Mb/133X SD card for $59.97.

PhaseOne CaptureOne software has announced an upgrade that supports D2HS raw files.

Dynalite's remote battery power system the XP1100 is in stock and ready to ship with extra batteries. My Sports Shooter special price is $1249.00 for the XP1100 and $125.00 for batteries. By the way its charger is now 110/220 for all of you worldwide travelers.

Bogen/Manfrotto has announced an all-new tripod material technology … the BASALT Reports 3S and 4S tripod. Super lightweight and very strong. They should be available very soon and of course we will have special Sports Shooter pricing. Check them out at
