Memorial Day In DC, the Preakness and May Specials from Penn Camera
By Jeff Snyder

Photo by
Memorial Day weekend in Washington DC is quite special. Between all of the monuments and the memorials downtown along the Mall, 1000's of veterans and their families will gather to console & rejoice with one another. Celebrations and eulogies will go hand in hand for those that have lost their lives fighting for us. Take a few minutes, reflect, thank God for your families, and then pick up your cameras and go make some award winning images!

It was quite the gathering of members at the Kentucky Derby in early May…and then the Preakness Stakes last week. Barbaro, we all thought you'd be treating us to a long awaited Triple Crown. Now, we hope that Barbaro recovers from what was described as an "athletic injury". In many ways thoroughbred racehorses are no different than humans, train, work hard, and be involved in freak accidents. Welcome to the sport of Horse Racing. Next stop, see you all in a few weeks at the Belmont Stakes in NY.

Think Tank - Make sure that you have your Think Tank Remote Covers in plenty of time for the Belmont. It's a 50/50 chance of rain that weekend, and I've personally stood in pouring rain waiting for the horses to make the final turn. Protect your gear! Think Tank's Remote Covers are in stock, available in two sizes, up to 70-200 & up to 600mm… The rolling Airport Security cases that so quickly became the hottest case on the market will be available again sometime this summer. Stay in touch with me. The new Steroid Speed Belts are here as well as the Pixel Eclipse Laptop Shade!

Nikon - D2X's $500 Rebate remains in effect through the end of June…Take advantage while you can! Many of Nikon's most popular lenses also have rebates attached… Save some $$ now! The ever-popular D200's are coming in, slow, but coming in. Thank you all for your continued patience!

Canon - EOS5D's $300 Rebate continues to keep this full frame camera very popular. Canon as well has rebates attached to many lenses and strobes. Mark IIn bodies are available….

Film? It has been brought to our attention that both Kodak & Fuji will be raising their FILM prices in the next 3 weeks. OK, so both of you that still shoot film, take note and stock up!

The DAM Book "Digital Asset Management for Photographers" by Peter Krough…This fantastic book for all levels of photographers, goes over "Digital Asset Management" and what you should be doing and how to archive your images. Now in stock, and a great Father's Day gift!

Our May notes are short & sweet … Please keep us in mind for your next purchase. If you have any questions whatsoever, call, email or IM me.

Happy Fathers Day to all!
