The NEW Nikon D3x
The Holiday Season has started and Samy's Camera is your one-stop shopping headquarters, whether you're looking for a gift ... or equipment to add to your camera bag before the end of the year!

Photographers have been asking for it and Nikon has delivered... the D3x is the new standard for which all digital cameras will be compared. A whopping 24.5 megapixel (138 MB processed NEF RAW 12 or 14 bit files), full-frame DSLR that sports the EXPEED image processing technology, wide range of ISO (100 to 1600 plus the ability to extend that to ISO 50 to ISO6400), continuous shooting up to 5 fps at full resolution, Nikon's 51-point AF system, 3-inch LCD monitor ... for more details, check out this link:

Call Samy's Camera Industrial Sales Department to get your name on "the list"!

Looking for a great gift for that loved one (or for yourself to keep in a short pocket)? We have a web special on the 8.1 mega-pixel Nikon CoolPix p60 for $133.95. The p60 features 5x optical zoom, optical VR image stabilization, sensitivity up to ISO 2000, D-Light contrast control and uses AA batteries.
