Greeting from one and all from Indy, home of the MotoGP US Grand Prix….I love when we get invaded by such a worldwide collection of photographers…lots of fun…

AquaTech Soft Hoods are now scheduled to arrive mid-September.

The Nikon D300S bodies have begun to arrive so call us to get one while they last.

Memory specials:
SanDisk Extreme III 4 Gb CF $39.00 each
SanDisk Extreme III 8 Gb CF $59.00 each
SanDisk Extreme III 32 Gb CF $179.00 each
Plus SanDisk is still running a mail-in rebate program.

The new and exciting Elinchrom Quadra battery powered flash system is in stock….very sexy little light….
I will have a special Sports Shooter price that I am not allowed to publish.

Canon announced two new "pro-ish" point and shoots, due to arrive in Oct/Nov time frame, the G11 and the S90. Personally, I think I am going to jump on the S90 right away.

For those of you who could use a high-res camera for studio or editorial with great glass and are willing to get into a different system the Sony A850 will come in at about $2K (body only) for a 24.6 Mp camera.

We were fortunate enough to have the USA Product Manager for Gitzo tripods, David Fisher, in the office last Friday, so we asked him to do a podcast with us about how pick the right Gitzo tripod and other Gitzo subjects…
