Happy Summer!

I hope you all will take some time this summer to enjoy your families...Hit the beaches, go fishing, go camping, go biking, go walking, or just hang out...But while you're participating in these activities, keep shooting...You never know when you'll make that award winning image!

A few new products and a big announcement this month from Penn Camera....

First the BIG Announcement ...
We would like to welcome Cooper's Camera Mart in Baltimore to the Penn Camera family.

Cooper's Camera Mart will carry most of the products that can be found at any Penn Camera location including a more extensive inventory of compact digital cameras, lenses, memory cards, and other accessories. Each Cooper's Camera Mart location is also able to print your digital images and 35mm film with their on-site mini-labs. We're very excited to be in the Baltimore market!

Power Squid
Its ingenious design and multi-purpose functionality makes Power Squid one of the most versatile power management devices available today.

Surge protector models provide the ultimate in reliability, featuring patented Power Blocker automatic shutdown technology to isolate connected equipment in case of a damaging power surge or outage.

Protect your discs (CD/DVD) the easy way...with Protective Disc Skins® from d-skin®. They protect your DVD, data, video game and music discs from scratches even while they play.
Snap It On
Just snap a d-skin® onto your favorite discs and consider them protected.
Leave It On...
The beauty is, d-skin® stays on your discs even while they play. That's right--your discs are totally readable right through the Skin. Even While It Plays!
Once your discs are skinned, there's nothing to take off or put on when you're playing, storing or transporting. One d-skin® does it all.
