By Jeff Snyder

The NEW Canon 5D Mark II
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL ....We survived "Black Friday", and by now "Cyber Monday" has passed too...That doesn't stop the fantastic specials that Adorama has to offer you! On the front page of our site,

December has started off with the announcement of Nikon's D3X 24.5 Megapixel FX format camera, which means that you'd better start stocking up on 8GB+ Compact Flash cards to handle those huge files.

The image quality has been reported to be unparalleled in a 35mm design SLR. Nikon will also begin to ship this month, the new GP1-GPS Unit, that will geotag your images with latitude, longitude, altitude and time information...pretty cool huh? The new AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G lens is slated to begin shipping too in the next few weeks...If you have not already placed an order for this new fast lens, contact me now...

More excitement began in the past few days as FINALY...Canon began to deliver the much anticipated 5D-Mark II bodies. By the time this is posted to many of you will have smiles on and be out there shooting 1080i Video with your shiny new 5D Mark II. Extra Canon LPE-6 Batteries for the 5D-Mark II should be hitting the warehouse soon too!

With the huge file sizes of the Nikon D3X and Canon 5D-Mark II, you're going to need more storage space. Prices have never been better on Hard Drives, whether desktop or portable. For instance, LaCie 1TB USB 2.0 Drive at $118.95...WOW

Think Tank Photo announced a few new backpacks too! They are, the Streetwalker, the Streetwalker Pro, the Streetwalker Harddrive and the new ShapeShifter backpack. These should all be available soon. For more info & specs, go to

AdoramaPix's special for the month of December is 16x20 prints on any of three surfaces for ONLY $4.95. Go to, and use coupon code PXSS495. This is an incredible price, and what could be a better gift than a 16x20 print. Coming soon from AdoramaPix, Hard cover books that you design with your images...Check back at for more details

Go to, for all of your holiday shopping needs.
