Ok, so here we are in October … the World Series is coming up before you know it, who will it be?? The ice is slick for the NHL start, and NFL Football is going strong! Ready for Super Bowl XLI? I am!

Ok, lots of new cool products to tell you about...Photokina is Cologne, Germany just ended, and the photo world is abuzz.

Canon has announced a very exciting "Cash BACK" Rebate program! For example, Buy an EOS5D with a selected Lens or Speedlite, and get a $600 CASH REBATE...The rebate program begins 10/15/06 and runs through 01/17/06. Call me or check our website for all the details! It's time to make those end of the year purchases to save some $$$.

Photo by member John Harrington's new book entitled Best Business Practices for Photographers is set for shipment on 10/24/06, however Penn Camera will have some copies in just a few weeks! Best Business Practices for Photographers covers the essential business topics that professional photographers need to know in order to succeed. It does not focus on taking pictures, starting a photography business, or selling photography, but rather explains how photographers can meet important business objectives, and covers the focal points of best practices--best practices in interacting with clients; best practices in negotiating contracts and licenses; best practices in business operations. We're thrilled to offer you a pre-order on John's book:

Nikon's D80 has arrived! And they are going to be VERY popular this fall. The entire new lineup of Nikon's CoolPix camera are here too! It's not too early to start thinking about your holiday gift giving!

Delkin has introduced the Express Card34, a Compact Flash card adapter for the Express Card slot in your MacBook Pro! Finally...

Jobo's Giga Vu Pro storage units are really cool. Why carry your laptop on location? Take along the Giga Vu, and store your images, view them, or watch a movie, or listen to your itunes.

Dyna-Lite has a promo this Fall. Purchase one of their 4040 Flash heads, and receive a FREE Dyna-Lite 40-SW 18" Soft White reflector designed specifically for the 4040 Heads. The 4040 has is a 2000WS fan cooled head with frosted glass dome. It's supplied with a 40-SILK for more diffusion if needed. A $135 value!

Apple's Aperture is now in version 1.5, and available immediately! For all of your Apple Computer needs, please keep us in mind. We can custom configure a machine for you today!

What do you do about your dusty sensors?

The Arctic Butterfly will save you from going insane trying to get the dust off! Ideal for Travel and for Light Dusting of sensor. The Arctic ButterflyT does not replace regular Sensor BrushT which has more filaments and is better suited for heavier dusting (color may vary at time of shipment). Includes an elegant carry case for added protection and class. Requires two AAA batteries.

Thank you all as always-Any Questions? You know where to find me!
