By Jody Grober

Greetings from Indianapolis. I was good to see some of you that are in town for the tennis tournament and I look forward to see more this race weekend.

Exciting news from Bogen and Elinchrom is the Elinchrom Quadra will be out soon. It is a real home run with a super small size, high level of control, dual head output, built in radio remote and many other features….and of course a great SS price from Roberts. Here's a short video:

Many members had been asking about the Black Rapid camera straps so we now have both the single and the double and stock. Check it out:

The Delkin Fat Gecko can handle lots of weight and help you put a camera in lots of places you couldn't before…

We are currently quite flush with used canon gear. Some of it can be seen on the web site, but much of it is not on the site so call us to get updates.

We are currently running a program on the website for free UPS Ground to the 48 states on orders over $100. Keep in mind that the order MUST be placed on the web site.

Many of you have called in concerned with the posting on of the crystal balling of the new Nikon gear…well we have not heard anything from Nikon to substantiate that data, but it sure is fun to dream. If half that comes true it will be an exciting year…

We no have inventory on all of the Canon bodies and most of the glass and be sure to take advantage of the extended instant rebate program on the lenses and flashes.

If any of you have doing video, Think Tank Photo has just released their new video pouches for the belt system. I spent some time with Deanne in Vegas and the bags are simply stellar. Here is a video she created about and using the new "wired up collection".

Lastolite has begun delivery of a very compact softbox and stand adapter for hotshoe flashes call the Ezybox Hotshoe Mark II. It has a new and improved flash mounting mechanism and allows you to set up your hotshoe flash in a softbox in a matter of seconds and closes down to a small pouch.

That's all for this month, so be sure to have some fun out there…

(Roberts Distributors is located in Indianapolis, IN. Jonathan "Jody" Grober can be emailed at: To place an order, call: 1-800-726-5544. You can check out Roberts' online product catalog at: .)
