Roberts Distributors 50th Anniversary Specials
By Jody Grober

Photo by

Greetings from Indy. We are looking forward to seeing all of the second string players of the Super Bowl rematch going at it on Monday night and I already know some of you are coming in so I look forward to seeing you.

Roberts is pleased as punch to celebrate our 50th anniversary on Tuesday the 21st. That's right, 50 years of the best service in the photo industry…and we would like to thank everyone out there for all of your support over the years…we couldn't have done it without you! Check our out 50th anniversary sales flier:

Epson has announced a nice rebate program on their pro printers and we ship to you at no charge. See the rebates here:
Now…they have also announced a whole new line of printers: The Epson Stylus Pro 4880, Stylus Pro 7880, Stylus Pro 9880 and Stylus Pro 11880 featuring UltraChrome K3 Inks with Vivid Magenta Ink Technology.

Ask for a free sample of Inkpress inkjet paper the next time you place an order and get the best paper for price on the market. Beautiful and affordable….

Roberts has added the LensCoat to our long list of great products for the professional photographer. LensCoat™ Lens Covers are manufactured from 100% closed-cell neoprene, offering protection from bumps, jars and nicks. Check it out:

We will have a great price on the 2 Gb SD SanDisk Ultra at $39.97, buy one and get a second one free, while supplies last.

Don't forget that Roberts is now a full line Apple dealer and to announce our arrival we are hosting a free Aperture Testdrive for anyone in the Indy area on Sept. 18th. Check out the program here:

Please consider Roberts for all of your video and multi-media needs. We have been working hard all Spring and Summer to get up to speed and begin offering you the famous Roberts service in the video market.

Canon has announced some new and exciting products, the EOS 1Ds Mk III, the EOS 40D and the 14/2.8 II…we have already started lists so email us with the product in the subject line and we will inform you when one is available.
Please send ONE email for each product, thanks! We have posted a sample Canon EOS 1D Mk III custom function set up on our web site. It is not a Canon or Roberts sanctioned set up, but some people who should know thought it might be helpful in making the III act more like the N. Also the new Mk III firmware is up on Canon site for downloading…

From Nikon: The D2X is in stock and I still have a few D200 refurbs at $1299.00 including a Mack warranty.

Think Tank Photo gear is coming in everyday, so we should have backordered covered soon. The Airport Security ETA has been pushed back to November. It's worth waiting for.

Look for me in Austin this weekend…

A big "way to go" to Lightning Boy on his awesome cover!

That's all from Indy, have a great month and make sure to have some fun!
