Samy's Camera was a proud sponsor of Sports Shooter Academy III that recently concluded in Orange County … and the photographs the students produced were fabulous! Each day there seems to be another Sports Shooter member update from a SSA III participant with more outstanding photos. The FunPix that have been posted show what a fun time everyone had during this great educational event. The Sports Shooter Academy is a great opportunity for students and working pros to polish their skills, open their eyes to new techniques and ways of looking at sports photography and have a fun time.

On with our November news…

Christmas and Hanukkah will be here before you know it and I have several suggestions for gift ideas for that photographer who has everything … like Captain Ron!

* Every photographer has an Apple iPod right? But if they are a discriminating music lover they want great sound … the Shure E2c Full Frequency Sound Isolating Earphones ( or the new cool SHURE E3 Sound Isolating Stereo Earphone ( would make a fabulous gift.

* Looking for cool, stylish photowear? Check out our wide selection of cool vests and jackets from Domke and Tamrac plus gloves by Setwear.

* Lightware has several wonderful computer bags and backpacks ... check out the Digital Backpack, GripPack or Courier Briefcase.

* Basketball season is here and what better gift than a radio remote from Pocket Wizard. Check out the complete line of Pocket Wizard hardware and accessories:

* Never get lost with a GPS. Samy's stocks many of the COOL Garmin portable GPS units:

* Toy Cameras --- Holgas, Lomos, Pinhole cameras, LensBaby --- these are always great gifts for that special person in your life. Check out Samy's complete stock of cool "alternative" cameras!

* Looking for the ultimate point & shoot camera? The Leica D-LUX 2 8-megapixel camera with a 28-112 zoom is the perfect thing for the working photographer who wants to take great photos but not lug around their big, heavy DSLRs. The D-LUX gives you three options for image size, the ability to shoot video with sound, image stabilization, 5 auto-focus options, a wide range of exposure and metering options and best of all? It's a COOL looking Leica!

* Another cool point & shoot is Canon's new, sporty-looking PowerShot G7. The G7 is the latest addition to Canon's fabulous lineup of versatile, high-quality pocket cameras. At 10 mega-pixels and a top ISO of 1600, the G7 is the perfect camera to use in those quiet, low-light situations where a digital SLR might be too obtrusive. Check out the specs at:

* Samy's also has in stock Canon's full line of photo quality ink jet printers from the ultra-portable Pixma IP90 to the imagePROGRAF iPF5000 Wide Format 17". Drop by any of our stores or talk to any of our sales reps about what's the right printer for that Holiday gift.

* You can never have enough memory cards! So give us a call for current specials and pricing on compact flash and SD cards from SanDisk and Lexar. Also check out the new card readers from
