Spring Specials From Samy's
By Louis Feldman
Aloha from sunny So Cal!
Variable Friction Magic Arm
It's Spring and we're in the swing of things on the diamond … it's baseball season!
What better to way to start off covering the national pastime than hauling your gear around in one of the very cool rolling cases from Think Tank Photo.
The super-popular Airport Security, the versatile International and the NEW Airport AirStream for those that don't have to lug around long glass. Check out the specs on Think Tank's website (http://www.thinktankphoto.com/ttp_product_RllrGrp.php) and give Samy's a call to check on pricing for Sports Shooter readers.
Think Tank Photo's 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.
The two most talked about pro cameras for photojournalists and sports shooters alike are the Canon EOS 1D Mark III and Nikon's D3. Talk to one of Samy's knowledgeable sale reps to get all of the details on these two hot digital SLRs…and check for pricing and availability.
Samy's Camera carries all of the great products from LPA Design's Pocket Wizard radio remote triggers. From the very versatile MultiMAX to the new and improved Pocket Wizard II to remote cords and strobe cords, mounting posts we have it all and in stock. Call now for pricing info.

No remote kit would be complete without a Bogen Super Clamp --- or two! (http://www.samys.com/product_detail.php?item=3366) and a Variable Friction Magic Arm http://www.samys.com/product_detail.php?item=9623. These two items are the basics for setting up remote cameras to capture a home plate slide or head-first dive into 3rd base.
We carry all of the major brands of strobes including: Dyna-Lite, Elinchrom, Speedoton and Profoto. Exciting news from Hensel for those photographers wanting a fabulous buy on a budget lighting system. Hensel's new Integra Pro 500 monolights feature a 6 - stop range with adjustable output in 1/10th stop increments, built-in slave and a 300-watt modeling lamp. We are offering this new strobe system in a kit with 2 Integra 500 units, 1 softbox, 2 umbrellas, 2 light stands, a carrying case and other accessories. Give us a call for more details.
And for portability when you have that portrait shoot where AC power is not convenient...check out the Hensel Porty 1200 watt battery system or the very cool Dyna-Lite XP-1100 portable AC power supply.
