Congrats to both the Yankees and Phillies for great seasons, as well as to the many members that have been covering the World Series games.

Lots of news in the Photo world, so let's go!

Nikon's NEW D3S should begin to ship in the very near future…We're accepting orders now as well as for the new 70-200 f2.8 AF-S VR II… Pre-Orders will be filled in the dated order that they are received, so email or call me as soon as you're ready.

Canon has a pile of news…The NEW EOS-1D MARK IV was announced, and Adorama is accepting orders. Pre-Orders will be filled in the dated order that they are received, so email or call me as soon as you're ready.

Canon's new INSTANT REBATE program is in effect through 01/16/10. Rebates on many of the most popular lenses as well as Speedlights. You can see the list of rebates here:

Think Tank's new Airport Takeoff, combo rolling case & backpack has arrived, and are doing extremely well. Check them out, it's another cool product from Doug & the crew at TT. Also, just a quick congrats to Chris Butcher, who just joined TTP and has been appointed their new National Sales Mgr, I wish him only the best!!! Adorama is YOUR Think Tank Photo source for every product in the line

As a reminder, we constantly receive "Refurbished" products from Nikon such as D700 & D3 bodies, Canon such as 5D Mark I and Mark III's plus many others. This is a great way for you to save some $$ in these tough economic times. The Refurbished gear comes to us directly from the manufacturers, supplied with all the accessories that come in a new box. Always check in with me before you purchase!

Not only does Adorama have a huge USED inventory, we also are in the market to buy or trade your cameras & lenses. I'll have a UPS pre-paid label sent to you via email to help out as well. If you have any questions about selling or trading, call or email me anytime.

Looking for a used 600mm or even a very hard to find Nikon 8mm Fisheye? We have them…I was looking through the inventory just this morning and saw that we have quite the inventory of used glass for both Nikon & Canon. Again, check in with me.

Check out our new Flashpoint Lighting Storage Case…It's a bargain at $169.95 compared to the name brands out there at more than double the $$. Dimensions are 40"Lx12"Hx9.75"W, and has two moveable dividers inside. Take a look here:

Did you know that Adorama is an authorized Apple re-seller? Well we are, and we have everything Apple for you…Check with me before you buy-

Adorama also has a huge selection of NetBook computers from Acer, Asus, Gateway, Toshiba HP & Samsung…Hard to imagine a portable laptop for under $300, but its happening now!, is your sure fire way to rent before you buy, or if you're on assignment and just need an extra few bodies, long glass, Profoto lighting or even a digital back… has just REDUCED our rental pricing. Go to and click on NEW PRICES to see for yourself.
