Howdy to all from Indy.

The big news is a price increase coming from Canon on accessories and most lenses. We will try to hold our lens prices down as long as inventories last, so call sooner than later. From April 27th through May 5th I will have the 5D at $1999.97 and the 40D at $999.97.

Take advantage of your Sports Shooter pricing on D3 and D300. Many of the new lenses are now available. For those of you that need a great knock around lens, I have a special SS price on the D300 with a Nikkor 18-200….

My memory deals of the month are:
SanDisk Ducati 4Gb SD regular price $119.97, special price $59.97 plus a mail-in rebate.

SanDisk EX III 16 Gb CF for $149.97 each plus a substantial mail-in rebate. See rebate for both at:
We can't post these prices so if ordering on the web, put "blue cow tail" in the comment field and we will make the price correct before shipping.

Check out and see the updated speed test on all the new cards and camera bodies.

Gitzo is coming up with a completely updated line of tripods with some great new features so I am closing out my current stock at dealer cost, plus there is a new rebate on Gitzo. Look for the rebate here: And look at our clearance center for the closeout prices. There is also a rebate on Manfrotto gear.

I have a MacBook Pro end-of-life special while supplies last:
$1649.97 SS End-OF-Life Special, $1999.00 normal retail

Now is a good time to get a Drobo because there is a $20.00 mail-in rebate.
I have one unit ONLY of a Drobo with three 1Tb 7200 Hitachi drives for $1299.00, regular price $1699.97.

We have plenty of stock on the PocketWizard MultiMaxes and the Transceiver Caddy by Hildozine.

I have special pricing on studio stand from Avenger A205S at $89.97 and A225S at 109.97. While supplies last.

I have the ColorMunki in stock so call me for SS pricing. This is an affordable and user-friendly way to get you monitor and printer in sync.

Tamron has begun shipping a very respectable 70-200/2.8 Macro for under $700.00

Of course the king of all water and dust protection, AQUATECH, is in stock. The Jackets are getting rave reviews and sell for only $199.97.

Looking for personal video…look at the Canon FH100 flash memory HD camcorder with two 8Gb SD cards and a shotgun mic for only $999.97…

I have 1 NEW Nikkor 12-24 with out box (lens only) for $824.00.

I have a Lightware Digital Backpack, BP2214, on clearance for $125.00 regular price is $363.97.

That's it for now, got to start getting ready for May in Indy…Race Month…
