Nikon keeps rolling out new products and last month was no different with the announcement of the innovative D90. This sub-$1000 digital SLR features a 12.3 megapixel imager with Nikon's new 24 fps D-Movie Mode. Now photographers can capture both quality still photographs AND digital video in one camera body.

Combine the D90's versatile shooting capacity with a wide range of Nikon lenses and the only limitation for uses of this innovative camera is your imagination. Call Samy's Camera to find out delivery details and pricing.

It's time to dump that old, beat up, worn out camera bag or laptop case and get something very cool from Think Tank Photo. Samy's carries the full line of TTP gear, including the Urban Disguise line of gear, which 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.

Also hot from Think Tank - 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: and give Samy's a call to check on pricing for Sports Shooter readers.
