Buy this collectible at Samy's: The Schmidt Company of Kuala Lampur arranged for a special edition of 300 M6 Gold Dragon to celebrate the re-entry of Leica into the Chinese market in 1995.
April is here and that means … baseball is back!

Baseball means long glass, so you should replace that old, tired, battered monopod with one of the new high-tech carbon fiber models. Check out Samy's Camera for great deals on monpods from Gitzo, Monfrotto, Induro and Slik. You don't want that expensive 400mm or 600mm crashing to the ground because that old monopod just can't cut it any longer!

Baseball also means trying to get that cool remote shot at home plate… check out all of the great products from PocketWizard…from the essential MultiMax radio trigger to the various cords you need for your camera. Call us for Sports Shooter pricing and availability.

The fabulous Nikon D3 and Canon's Mark EOS 1D Mark III are the leaders of the pack in the sports and photojournalism field … you know the specs and you want to buy… so give us a call!
