Get Ready For Football Season With Samy's Camera
By Louis Feldman

With apologies to Hank William, Jr.: Are YOU ready for some football?

Who needs "professional" football in LA when you have the USC Trojans, the consensus #1 team in the country?

While Angelinos are gearing up for another great season of college football ... leagues from the NFL to jucos to preps to the peewees are all putting on the pads and heading for the country's real favorite pastime.


So are YOU ready for football season?

If you're looking to replace that old monopod that isn't quite what it used to be, check out Samy's inventory of Gitzo and Bogen products. We have all sizes, prices and weights. But I have one word of advice on monopods: Carbon Fiber.

Another thing to consider with football season is stock up on compact flash cards. Call us for competitive pricing on all of the top brands of memory cards ... SanDisk, Hoodman and Lexar. Another item you might want to consider upgrading for football season is your memory card reader. We have IN STOCK the latest FireWire and USB card readers from Lexar and SanDisk, designed and built to reliably and quickly view your images and download them onto your hard drive.

A cool way to cut down your time downloading memory cards at a game or wherever you're on assignment is to use a portable storage device that automatically moves files from your cards to its built in hard drive. Give us a call for special Sports Shooter pricing on units from Epson (P-3000 and P-5000), Jobo (GIGO Pro Evolution) and Digital Foci (Picture Porter Elite). In the field use one of these units to download cards while you continue shooting, saving time, helping you make deadlines and streamlining your digital workflow and archiving!

Does anyone on the planet make cooler looking products than Apple? The new slimmer, faster and cool-looking iMac is available in 20- and 24-inch widescreen models, includes built-in wireless, Mac OS X, and the new iLife '08. Duo Core 2 Intel processor drives the iMac at speeds up to 2.4GHz. For maximum power, you can upgrade the 24-inch iMac to an Intel Core 2 Extreme processor at 2.8GHz. For availability and pricing, give one of Samy's Industrial Sale representatives a call. And for details on the new iMac, check this link at Apple:

And speaking of digital ... remember Samy's is your one-stop location for all of your digital video and audio needs. We carry video cameras from Sony and Canon, whether you're looking for the top of the line like the Canon XH-A1 3CCD, HDV Camcorder or the Sony HDR-FX7 High Definition Handycam® Camcorder to the small palm-corders that will fit easily in your camera bag or backpack.

We have a full range of audio recording gear from Sennheiser, Rode, Audio-Technica and Azden. Check out this link for information on audio kits from Samy's:

Samy's Camera is a proud sponsor of the Sports Shooter Academy Boot Camp this fall. If you have never attended a Sports Shooter educational event, you have no idea what you're missing. The educational value of these workshops cannot be measured in just what you learn in the classroom sessions and out shooting events ... the contacts, friends and fun are all part of the SSA experience.

(Contact Samy's Camera in Los Angeles by calling 323-964-0323 Ext 200 and ask for an industrial sales representative. Also check out Samy's Specials on or Samy's web site at:
