Ho, Ho Ho! Holiday Greetings from Samy's Camera
By Louis Feldman

It has been a wonderful year for Samy's Camera and our partnership with Sports Shooter. We are proud sponsors of the web site and both Sport Shooter Academy workshops in 2006 and we look forward to a fun and prosperous year in 2007!

Just a few equipment notes for December … remember when you make those important multi-media decisions, give Samy's a call for great pricing on all of your digital video and audio needs for 2007. With so many photographers and publications making the plunge into more multi-media, Samy's carries the full line of digital video cameras and accessories from all of the leading makers like Sony, Canon and JVC.

Also Samy's is an authorized Apple Computer reseller, so if you need a new high-powered portable like the MacBook and MacBook Pro or a screaming fast desktop computer like the ultra-cool iMac or blazing-fast G5 Quad, give us a call for current Sports Shooter pricing.

It seems Think Tank Photo has a new and innovated product announcement every month … we have in stock all of their popular bags and cases from the new Airport Acceleration backpack to the Glass Taxi long lens case to the always-popular Pixel Pocket Rocket compact flash card wallet.

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.

Here are my tips for the last minute holiday Sports Shooter shopper:
* 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.

* The Epson P2000 and P4000 photo storage devices are IN STOCK at Samy's. The P-2000 features and 40 GB hard drive, while big brother P-4000 sports a 60GB hard drive. No need for power or a laptop, this portable viewer/storage device has a big 3.8-inch LCD screen, built in card slot and runs on an interchangeable, rechargeable battery. Imagine clearing your cards while you're still out on location shooting ... or driving back to the office.

* 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!

* A 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:

* The ExpoDisc is the easy to use custom white balance solution that helps you get a correct color balance every time. The ExpoDisc neutral diffusion filter that gathers ambient light and passively transmits 18% of it through to your camera's light meter, effectively producing a 'gray frame'. You then set a custom white balance using the 'gray frame' that results in accurate color in most lighting conditions. Check out or give us a call for pricing info.

And one last reminder that Samy's is your one-stop shopping location for all of your lighting (Dyna-Lite, Profoto, Hensel, Speedotron, Chimera, Photoflex) and remote (Pocket Wizard, Bogen, Gitzo) needs.

Samy's will be involved again with the Sports Shooter Academy in April and the Sports Shooter Newsletter Annual Contest. Happy Holidays!
