L.A. might not bet getting much out of Denver these days (especially wins by the Lakers) but we did get one thing: WWE RAW! Everyone has been talking Kobe versus LeBron for months but the way things are looking now, it could be 'Melo vs. Superman!

On to Samy's news for this month …

Both Nikon and Canon have new digital SLRs that give still photographer's a quick, easy and inexpensive way to get into hi-def video. Nikon's new D5000 and Canon's EOS Rebel T1i.

We have both cameras in stock, give a Samy's sales representative a call for current pricing and make sure to tell them that you are a Sports Shooter reader …for tech specs, check these links:

If you want more features in a DSLR hybrid, then check out Nikon's D90 and the Canon D5-Mark II:

Speedlites are all the rage in the portrait, wedding and photojournalism fields and Samy's is now an official distributor of the cool lighting mods by Dave Honl. These nifty devices --- grids, gobos, gel kits and reflector are well designed and extremely well made. Honl has been featured on numerous websites and has taught very popular classes at the Sports Shooter Academy. Check them out!

Another cool little item that has been very popular recently is NovaFlex's adapter that allows Nikkor lenses to be mounted on Canon camera bodies. Check this link to see all of NovaFelx's cool products we carry at Samy's:

Samy's is also an authorized Apple reseller … check out their latest laptops:

Think Tank Photo has taken the photo industry by storm and the company has recently announced a new line of backpacks for the working photographer. The Streetwalker, Streetwalker Pro, Street Walker Pro, Shape Shifter and the Urban Disguise 3. Like all of TTP's products, these new backpacks were designed and constructed with the working professional photographer in mind. Deep pockets, heavy-duty zipper, well thought out designs and versatility are all hallmarks of Think Tank Photo and these new backpacks continue that tradition.
