Penn Camera's November News & Notes
By Jeff Snyder

Photo by

Canon HV-10
It's the time of year that we all give thanks. Thank your wives, husbands, kids, families, friends and colleagues for just being there for you. Then carve up that big Thanksgiving Turkey and enjoy! The autumn colors have been bursting here in the mid-Atlantic region, reminding us of the days of Kodachrome and Fuji Velvia, except now it's custom functions set to "Vivid" mode to help us see the same colors in digital that we saw in our slides.

Congrats to all of the SS Academy graduates. Your work was no less than mind boggling! WOW!

It was just FANTASTIC meeting so many of you while Penn Camera teamed up with Think Tank at the PhotoPlus show in New York a few weeks ago. I should have kept a count of the members that stopped by, it was overwhelming. It's always great to put a face with the voice or email. Keep it up!

What's New
Both Canon & Nikon have some very aggressive Cash Back rebate programs in effect for the holiday season. It's time to spend those end of the year dollars to save on your taxes!

For example, if you purchase a Canon 5D Body you get a $300 Rebate. If you add another product, such as a lens or flash, the 5D Rebate DOUBLES to $600, plus the rebate on the additional item. So you REALLY have a chance to save some huge bucks, and pick up some practically FREE gear after the rebates.

If you'd like a copy of the rebates, email me:

Nikon's D80 & D200's are in stock, the shelves are piled high. Both the D80 & D200 are great choices for not only advanced photographers, but also the professionals out there. The files you'll see are mind blowing, and with both models incorporating Nikon's Remote Commander, you can control all of your Speedlights from the camera. Wireless i-TTL like never before! For a stocking stuffer, don't forget Joe McNally's DVD, "The Speed of Light", which showcases Nikon's Speedlight system and its wireless i-TTL capabilities.

Think Tank Photo's booth at Photo Plus was jammed for all three days. The new Airport Acceleration and Airport Antidote Backpacks were a huge hit! The Airport Check In Briefcase that holds up to a 17" laptop has been very popular with those of you that have the Rolling Airport Security case, since it drops over the handle and they can be rolled together.

I have some VERY SPECIAL pricing on a limited quantity of Hoodman's 133X-150X CF Cards. Hoodman's new line is faster and more efficient than any card on the market. The Professional Performance Only speed range is 150Xmax ˆ 133Xmin for 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB. CALL ME FOR PRICING AND AVAILABILITY.

Hoodman's Universal Right Angle Finder is in stock! Supplied with a case, and eyepieces for all of the most popular Digital SLR's on the market today.

Very Exciting is Canon's new line of HD Camcorders. We are specialty dealers for the entire line-up from Canon DV. The new HV-10 has a 10x optical zoom lens and 2.96 Mega-pixel CMOS image sensor ensure meticulous detail and superior color reproduction. And, with its HD and Standard Definition recording modes, you can make the move to HD without making your SD equipment obsolete. The HV-10 is IN STOCK NOW! Also having just arrived, is Canon's Pro model XH-A1, a 2 CCD High Definition camcorder for the serious videographer!

We're anxiously awaiting the delivery of Epson's new Stylus Pro 3800 printer. With these features, it's sure to be a huge hit. The list is forming now for these, Call Me.
