Bogen is a new "hydrostatic" camera arm that holds about 30% more weight than a Magic Arm with the sure grip of a "hydrostatic" ball joint.
Greetings from Indy home of the NFL Champions, the Indianapolis Colts!!!

Sounds great and it's fun to say.

I guess I am spoiled this week because my Buckeyes are also top of the pile.

Of course the big news is the Canon announcements…EOS 1D Mark III, 16-35 II, and the 580EX II! I checked out the Mk III last Saturday and it was stellar!!! We are getting flooding with requests and questions…to be added to our list please send an individual email for each piece you are looking for. We will contact you when one comes available. I have a good feeling about he quantity of bodies…nothing to back that up, just a good feeling. Please call us for pricing, but we do not have firm delivery dates as of yet. Maybe the bodies will start shipping in late March or early April…but we really are not sure.

I will be at PMA next week and will get more info as well as all of the announcements from our friends at Nikon….

Big news from Bogen is a new "hydrostatic" camera arm that holds about 30% more weight than a Magic Arm with the sure grip of a "hydrostatic" ball joint.
Check out the links:

Canon has a very cool new palm size HD camcorder, the HV20…this one will knock your socks off…check in out:

We have the Hyperdrive Space in stock now. It is the new CF and SD direct download device that downloads 20Mb sustained download per second, will do 100 Gb on a single battery charge and just in case they offer an external AA battery pack…a great package for $315.00 including the external pack:

Lexar has announced their new 300x cards, a new reader to take advantage of their speed and I am fairly sure (86.98 % confident) that the new Canon cameras will take advantage of the write speed…more to come, like pricing, after the show in Vegas….

Many of the new Gitzo "G-lock" monopods and tripods on in stock now…the joints actually strengthen as weight increases…they come with ALR legs that allow you to open a monopod is a couple of seconds…naturally, I will have special Sports Shooter pricing…

The Epson 3800, 17" of pure printing wonder, is in stock now!!! Call for Sports Shooter pricing on the 3800 printer and the P3000 and P5000 download devices:

The super folks at ThinkTankPhoto have hit a real homerun with the Airport International and they are in stock….

Here's to having fun and traveling safe … ciao!
