Summer Equipment Specials From Penn Camera
By Jeff Snyder, Penn Camera

This just in from LowePro ----
LowePro has consulted with camera manufacturers and digital photographers to produce the Stealth Shoulder Bags 600 and 650. Model 600 holds one digital body, 3 lenses (deep enough for a 70/80-200/2.8 with hood affixed), flash, a Mac 3 and peripherals. The model 650, somewhat larger, will handle 2 bodies.

Both models have 2 built-in rain covers, through-the-top access to equipment, protected storage for media cards, monopod holder, organizer for pens, PDAs, press kits, outside pockets, inside pockets, sliplock loops for adding on extra lens cases and accessory pouches, carry handle, air cushion contoured shoulder strap and a padded belt loop slot for securing to photographer's body for anti-shock and anti-theft.

They can be converted to a belt/fanny pack with a Street and Field Deluxe Waist Belt; in conjunction with a shoulder harness, can be quickly converted to a backpack and, a built-in key ring holder. Inconspicuous, finished in black on black, the Stealth Series is a practical solution to a real need.

Delivery will start in July and pricing will follow SOON...Orders will be taken this weekend at the NPPA Convention in San Francisco being held at the Grand Hyatt. Be sure to stop by and say hi!

Nikon ---
WOW! Nikon's CoolPix 990's are coming in and going out the door in minutes. The supply of D1's has been very good, and delivery of any orders has been about 10 days or less. We are still waiting on the delivery status of the 80-400 VR lens, I'll pass on the information as soon as it comes in. The announcement last month o f Nikon's new 14mm f2.8 AFD lens has created quite a buzz.... The much touted Nikon N80 has been getting extremely food feedback from the customers that have taken delivery...Check them out!

Canon ---
The Canon Cash rebate program has been extended through 07/30/00...Take advantage of the cash back now! Canon's new entry into the digital market, their D30 will hopefully begin to ship by the end of August. Definitive pricing will be available soon!

Each bag is numbered between 1 & 2400. They are $89, and free shipping in the US via ground UPS for Sports Shooter readers.

Fuji is debuting the new Fujichrome Provia 400F (RHPIII, which was formally announced at Photo Plus West this week. Incorporating advanced technology developed for Fujichrome Provia 100F; the new film offers the finest grain of any ISO 400 emulsion as well as brilliant, highly saturated color.
