Greetings from Indianapolis and we look forward to seeing many of you in Indy next week for the Brickyard….

News from Nikon…a new camera made it to an official Nikon USA web site before any leaks…I do not EVER remember this happening before…there's not a lot of info, but here it is…

I am hearing rumors that Canon has again pushed up the announcement of their new high-end DSLR from February 2007 back to Photokina 2006….just silly rumors though…

Thanks to one and all for their patience, waiting for the Think Tank Photo Airport Security to get here…we are hoping for delivery in the second week of August…keep your fingers crossed…please note that the message on their web site "Finally! What Photographers have requested is here!" refers to the original arrival of the A.S….Pre-order yours today at this link: and put SS July in the comment field to get the SS price.

Epson has a great program for any high volume large format printers. Bottom line is a free printer call Jeff Moore at Roberts for details.

I have a special introductory price on the new PocketWizard Plus II Transceiver...please call for the price…not allowed to publish it.

My bag of the month is the Pelican PCS183B…it has the optimum O.D. of 22"x14"x9", it's a smooth roller case, it has a protected computer pocket for 15" laptops and is very enticing at a SS special price of $219.00 for the next two weeks…Check it out at:

Hoodman 150X CF cards in the 2Gb and 4 Gb have made's top ten list (#1 on the EOS 5D) and we have a special promo to celebrate. 2Gb/150X was $149.97, Now it's $119.97 plus a special Sports Shooter surprise…4Gb/150X was $259.97, now it's $219.97 plus a special SS surprise…
