A couple of quick equipment notes:

Nikon has announced two new cameras, the widely anticipated D3 and the D40. For specs and details on these camera, check out these links on Nikon's website:

To get on "the list" for the D3, contact an Industrial Sales representative for details.

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.
