News & Notes From Adorama

Mitsubishi Electric CP-3800DW Digital Color Photo Printer
Happy beginning of summer to all! The NHL is winding down, or should I say worn down, at least here in Washington. Alex Ovechkin has changed Hockey forever in this city, and fans are lining up for next season's tickets already… Baseball is everywhere from MLB to your local Little League and Pee Wee teams, as is soccer filling up every neighborhood field from near to far. Go out there and shoot away…

Let's see what's new & exciting…
Speaking of Little Leagues, if you're in the Team imaging business, or looking to go that way, Adorama is now an official dealer of the Mitsubishi line of printers, which are perfect for very fast printing on site. Consider the CP9800DW for print sizes 3.5x5, 4x6, 5x7 and 6x9. It'll spit out a 5x7 print in just 16 seconds! The Mitsubishi CP3800DW is Mitsubishi's latest Dye Sublimation printer which offers fast printing of 10x8 and 12x8 images from a roll with print speeds are approx 30 seconds for a 10x8, 38 seconds for a 12x8 print. The print quality is gorgeous, and the cost per print is VERY low, so your ROI is FAST!
Definitely worth taking a look at:

Nikon's new D5000 has been a huge hit, especially for those of you wanting to get involved on the video end of photography. We've just received a supply of D5000 Bodies, which would be a great addition to your camera bag already filled with Nikon lenses.

D700's have picked up quite a bit, I'm finding the shooters are adding these to their D3's as an additional body, at a much lower price & easier on the shoulder, weight wise…

Canon's 5D Mark II is IN STOCK for immediate shipment, and as I've said in the past few months, the 5D Mark II continues to be one of the hottest selling DSLR's that I've ever sold. Mark III's are in stock as well…

Want to save some serious $$ on your gear? Check in with me for "Refurbished" Bodies & Lenses. Stock levels change daily, so a quick email or call is best.

Think Tank's newish Shape Shifter Backpack is all the rage…it compacts to a really nice flat laptop case (up to a 17"), OR, when you want to add in 2 bodies, 3 lenses and flashes, it expands to hold them as well. Kudo's to the boys (and you too Deanne) at Think Tank. Some very exciting cool new products are on the horizon from Think Tank, stay tuned!

Have you seen the new Casio High Speed cameras? This is COOL…The Casio High Speed Exilim Digital Cameras offers a high-speed 30 shot-per-second burst rate and high-speed movies at a maximum of 1000 fps. It also delivers a number of other innovative functions, including the ability to capture a still image while viewing the movement of the subject in slow motion and automatically selecting and saving one frame from continuous shots. And SMALL too! For instance the Exilim EX-FC100 measures only 3.9 inches wide, 2.3 inches high and .9 inches thin. It features a 5x optical zoom lens with CMOS shift anti-shake function and a 2.7-inch high-performance Super Clear LCD. This high-speed model also boasts an effective 9.1-megapixel resolution.

AdoramaPix, our in house online Digital Lab has quickly become one of the country's finest photo labs. The pricing is incredible, and the printing quality is unsurpassed.

It's always a pleasure to help out all of the members of… And to meet you on occasion too. Just last week at the Preakness Stakes in Baltimore, I had a number of people stop me to say hi.

Have a great month!
