Holiday Specials From Roberts
By Jody Grober

Hello to everyone from Indy.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and we are all looking forward to a great New Year.

On behalf of our entire staff at Roberts, I would like to extend my sincerest appreciation to all you hard working photogs who allow us to serve you and help you get through your days. It is our goal to be as responsive as possible with competitive pricing and a positive attitude. It is my firm commitment to take that goal and follow it through for a fantastic 2001. A very special thanks to Bert and the whole gang for doing such a wonderful job.

On to the business at hand. Nikon D-1s are readily available, as are most lenses and accessories. If you are waiting for an 80-400VR they are slowing coming in and we are working off our list. If you are not on the list, please call me and we'll queue you up. Congrats to Nikon on the naming of the CoolPix 990 as "Machine of the Year" by Time.,2822,90749,00.html

By the waythere is currently no official news or announcements from Nikon concerning a new digital camera to be labeled the D-2. Nikon will remain on the cutting edge of technologies and as official releases come available I will keep you notified. I have a super deal for the gift for youthe Nikon CoolpPix 880 for $649.97 until Dec. 24. On the used front I have some very nice Nikon factory refurb F100 bodies for $999.00.

Canon's new D-30 is generating a great response, especially for it's fantastic image quality. I believe we will be near the end of our list soon, so call and let me know you want one. Grips and batteries are here. As usual Canon glass is in good supply as are accessories. The super small 2 MegaPixel Canon S100 digital Elph is on sale for $449.97, please mention you are a "Sport Shooter".

Lexar, the leader in digital storage, is helping everyone with fantastic rebates on lots of their compact flash cards. We have it in stock, including 160/10x, 320/12x and 256/10x.

I am continuing a Sport Shooter special price on Altamira's Genuine Fractal 2.0 at $129.00.

IBM 1Gb Microdrives won't last for long at $399.97 and when they are gone the will probably go up to about $449.00.

I have sweetened the deal on the Panasonic 2 mile, 14 channel, 2 way radios with a final price of $19.97 per unit after all rebates.

I still have some Xpan kits at an unbelievable price plus a $200.00 mail-in.

Well that's all for now and once again, a really lovely holiday season to all!!

Jody and the staff at Roberts.
