Baseball playoffs. The NFL and college football season is in full swing. NBA training camps opened this week and colleges can begin official hoop practices soon ... so basketball season is nearly here!

Samy's is your headquarters for Pocket Wizard products. Whether you're trying your first glass remote or a simple floor cam ... the radio triggering systems from Pocket Wizard is what you need. The MultiMax transceiver is a 32 channel unit featuring the most advanced digital radio triggering system available in the photographic market with integrated trigger time control software, true trigger confirmation and selective quad triggering only to mention a few. The true trigger confirmation feedback, up to 1600-feet away or more, without the need for signal repeaters or daisy-chained radios. Call Samy's for Sports Shooter pricing and to check for all of the often hard-to-find Pocket Wizard cords and accessories.

The new PocketWizard Plus II has started shipping according the MAC Group distributors of PocketWizard products. The PocketWizard II Plus the biggest feature is on-the-fly switching between transmitter and receiver, giving users more flexibility in use. We will have more details and pricing once we get these units in stock. Give Samy's a call to get on the purchase list and for pricing information.

Samy's carries the two popular choices in camera memory: SanDisk and Lexar. We have all formats (compact flash and SD) in stock in an assortment of speeds. So depending on your needs and you budget, you have the right card for you. Like hard drive space, you can never have enough!

And speaking of SanDisk, the company announced at the recent Photokina show "the world's highest capacity card for professional photographers" the 16-gigabyte SanDisk Extreme III CompactFlash card. The new cards will have minimum write and read speeds of 20 megabytes per second. SanDisk indicated that the 16-gb cards will be available to dealers by the end of the year. So stay tuned!

This small storage device/viewer comes in 40, 80 and 120 Gigabyte configurations and features a high capacity, replaceable lithium ion battery, supports CompactFlash Type I/II and Microdrives, plus other media like SmartMedia, Memory Stick, SD, MMC, xD through optional adapter.

We are an authorized Think Tank Photo dealer ... the Airport Addicted backpack and the fabulous Airport Security roller are two of the hottest items going for the sports, news and commercial photographer. Think Tank just announced several new products: The Glass Taxi (the company's first long lens bag), the Airport Check In (a cool brief case designed with the photographer in mind), the Airport Acceleration and Antidote (a smaller versions of the Addicted). Well made, well designed and with the extra touches photographers need and want ... Think Tank products are what the discriminating Sports Shooter is using!

We are the gadget capital of the west coast and there is no better and useful gadget for the working photographer than a GPS. Ever get lost on assignment? You can add your own personal "never-lost" system in your own vehicle with a GPS from Magellan and Garmin The Roadmate 360 and 760 and the Garmin StreetPilot and Quest not only will guide you to your destination with an interactive map, but gives you voice prompt turn-by-turn directions. Want to find a place to eat? No problem because these GPS units all have nearly 2 million points of interests like businesses, banks, hotels, airports, gas stations, ATMs, restaurants and more stored.

Remember that Samy's Camera is the largest photographic rental house in Southern California and we have stores in Los Angeles (Fairfax main store), Pasadena, Santa Barbara, Venice and Orange County.

Samy's Camera held a very educational and cool event last week with PhotoShelter, Canon, Phase One, Epson and Apple, which held a great training session on their Aperture software. Thanks to all of those wonderful companies and to all of those that attend.
