Equipment News & Specials From Roberts
By Jody Grober

Welcome back to all of you that went to the Olympics and greetings to all from the sports capital of the world, (that's Indy).

In the two months since last we wrote so much has transpired. A very interesting product announcement came out of Photokina. Kodak will have a digital back for your Hasselblad remotes that captures a 48Mb file, but does not need to be tethered to a computer.

New big cards have come out of Lexar.

-256 Mb/10x compact flash card available now for $ 649.97 SS special $619.97
-320 Mb/12x compact flash card available in November for $899.97

-CF Firewire Reader for 89.97.

For those of you still in the film world Kodak and Fuji have some new promos out.

Kodak is offering free stuff with purchases of Portra film.

Fuji is offering free multipurpose knife/tool units with purchase of any pro film. A small unit with $250.00 purchase and a large unit with $500.00. Please mention the promo when ordering.

As many of you already know, the Lightware Digital Backpacks were out just in time for Australia and are now in stock and my Sport Shooter special price is $275.00.

Bogen has announced a new trade in program for Pocket Wizard. They say info is on their web site, but you try to find it. Give us a call and we can give you the specifics. They will take almost anything in on trade and give you money off a new kit.
