Samy's Camera's May Report: New MacBooks and Products from Think Tank; Canon begins delivery of the EOS Mark III
By Louis Feldman
You've read about it. You've been calling about it. You've been waiting breathlessly (it seems). Yes, Canon started shipping this week its new professional digital SRL the Canon EOS Mark III. If you don't know what the Mark III is --- you must have been in a cave --- it's Canon's uber-replacement for the Mark IIn, featuring:
Canon's new Mark III
* 10 fps continuous shooting (for up to 110 frames)
* New 45-point Area AF sensor with 19 high-precision, cross-type points, 26 standard-precision AssistAF points
* ISO range of 100 - 3200 (expandable to L50; H6400)
* 10.1 Mega-pixel APS-H CMOS sensor
* Dual "DIGIC III" processors
* New auto focus system with 19 cross type sensors
* New Integrated Cleaning System
* 3.0" LCD with Live View mode
If you haven't contacted Samy's to get on "the list", run, don't walk to your phone and call us to check on availability and current pricing.
Remember 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. And … Apple just updated the MacBook, bumping up the speed of the processors, 1GB RAM and larger hard drives in all of the models. The updated MacBooks come in three models:
* White 2.0GHz model
* White 2.16GHz model
* Black 2.16 GHz model.
All of the upgraded MacBooks include a built-in iSight video camera and the latest generation of 802.11n wireless networking. The notebooks also come with iLife '06 and Mac OS X 10.4.9 Tiger.
Sports and PJ fav Think Tank Photo recently announced a new line of products. The Urban Disguise line of gear is designed for photographers operating in urban or dangerous environments, carrying thousands of dollars worth of photo equipment can be an invitation to have their gear stolen. Urban Disguise bags are intentionally designed not to look like camera bags, thus allowing photographers to carry even their larger lenses and laptops into potentially perilous settings:
* Urban Disguise 10 - Designed to hold a small SLR with the lens attached and one to two lenses with the hood.
* Urban Disguise 20 - Designed to hold a SLR with lens attached and one to two lenses with the hood.
* Urban Disguise 30 - Designed to a SLR body and multiple lenses, including up to a 70 - 200 2.8 with the hood reversed.
* Urban Disguise 40 - Designed to hold two SLR bodies and multiple lenses, including up to a 70 - 200 2.8 with the hood reversed.
* Urban Disguise 50 - In addition to holding multiple SLRs and lenses (including up to a 70 - 200 2.8 with the hood reversed), it will hold some 15-inch laptops.
* Urban Disguise 60 - In addition to holding multiple SLRs and lenses (including up to a 70 - 200 2.8 with the hood reversed), it will hold 15- to 17-inch laptops.
Give Samy's a call for Sports Shooter pricing and availability of the new Urban Disguise line … and all of the great from Think Tank Photo.
