Spring Special From Robert Distributors

AquaTech's new photographers waterproof jacket
Greetings from Indy, where it looks like we're not in the NBA playoffs again. Sigh…

Canon posted the following several weeks ago:
"With the AF Mirror Adjustment including the updated firmware version 1.1.3, the EOS-1D Mark III AF function performed better in our tests than all previous EOS camera models."

And we now have the 1D MK III in stock. Please ask for the SS pricing.
The new Canon wide format printers not only incredible printers but I have incentives to get very aggressive with pricing. You can check them out here:

There is also a mail-in rebate of $150.00 on the Pixma Pro9500 printer.

Nikon is rolling along like a freight train….great reviews on the D3, D300 and the new lenses are coming in every hour of every day….I am still on a wait list for D3 but the wait isn't looking too bad and I have the 14-24 in stock. The other new glass is still a bit hard to get so call or email to get the list.

For those of you dabbling in multi-media, Olympus has a nice new digital voice recorder, the LS10. It has the features of all the big boys, but it is smaller and costs less. Check it out:

Drobo has been a pleasant new product for us. It is a great way to back up your image bank, it is easy to use and not hard on the wallet.

Our memory deals of the month are the SanDisk 16Gb CF card, SDCFX3-16384-901, for $149.97. Starting April 6 buy one and get $90.00, buy two and get $200.00 or buy three of them and get $300.00 from a mail-in rebate. One per household. Click here for ordering directions:

And the Extreme IV 4 GB CF with Extreme reader for $99.97 plus a $60.00 mail-in rebate. While supplies last on both deals!

With the NBA playoffs coming and the NCAA finals next week we have stocked up on Pocket Wizard, cable, floor plates and rubber hoods.

Most of the new Think Tank Photo gear is in stock. I still have a short list on the Airport Security 2.0 but it is dwindling fast. I do have the "Skins" and the "Hydraphobias" in.

AquaTech's new photographers waterproof jacket is in stock, check it out.

And of course all of the AquaTech Rain Cover, the top of the line in camera protection.

The latest and greatest in download devices is the Sanho Colorspace "0". backup 120GB on a single charge, view your images on a high quality screen, Display JPEG and RAW images. Accepts 11 different card types, High capacity, 40-160GB, World's Fastest 25MB/s backup, Download 1GB in under 1 minute…SS price $379.97.

That's all for now. Be good and make sure to have some fun along the way.
