Winter Cheer from Penn Camera
By Jeff Snyder

Ho Ho Ho from all of us at Penn Camera!

For all the last minute Hanukah and Christmas shoppers out there, take a
look at these specials !

Canon has outfitted Santa in a new Digital Elph S100 camera, that is so small it fits into his suit pocket. He was so thrilled with the Sports Shooter special price of $479, that he ordered one for each of his factory workers! Also on special from Canon are the EOS3 Body $999 and the Canon 17-35 f2.8 $1396....Canon's D30 is a great way to capture all the holiday lights, D30's are in stock and can ship immediately! The new Canon G1's are available too. Digital video from Canon is a great way to record your holiday memories, take a look at the ZR10, Optura, Elura MC, Gl-1 and XL-1 cameras from Canon at

"Digital Wallet" has arrived and is being very well received. This is portable 6-gigabyte storage device about the size of a Palm Pilot. What you do is, go out on a shoot, fill up your memory cards (any type), and then insert them into the Digital Wallet. Think of it this way: there are four photographers from a newspaper shooting a football game, and the runners on the field pick up their full cards, now with the Digital Wallet, the runner uploads all the images from each shooter and then gives them back the cards ! The files will then be downloaded to the DW and stored for later USB uploading to your office/home computer. The first unit I had was shown at the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar last month and received a great response. It's $499, almost the cost of 2 memory cards.... For all the specs go to , or I can fax you the info.

Memory Card, Memory Cards, Memory Cards....Oh, which ones to buy??? Well we feel the same way when we are trying to decide what to carry in stock...We have: Lexar, IBM, Sony, Olympus, Sandisk and Microtech cards in stock at very competitive pricing.

Lexar REBATES!! There are now Ca$h rebates on the Lexar cards as well as their new FireWire card reader, call me for details or go to

IBM's 1-gigabyte Microdrive is now $389...WOW!! A GREAT deal for the Canon and Kodak cameras!!!

Nikon's CoolPix 880, the baby sister of the CoolPix 990 has been reduced in price! The entire line-up on Nikon Digital Cameras are in stock....Rebates on the CoolpPix 800 and 950 expire 12/31/00, so hurry and save some $$.....Nikon has started to ship a 28mm filter set for the CoolpPix cameras, which includes a UV, Circular Polarizer, ND4 and ND8x at $59. D1's are available immediately, as are most of the accessories for the D1....Nikon's new 18-35 f3.5-4.5 D/AF lens is here and it's a great lower priced lens for your digital shooting...D1's are in stock....

Kodak has started to ship the new RFS3600 Film Scanner, for 35mm negatives and slides. With 3600dpi Optical resolution, you can scan negs, chromes or batch scan all 36 frames at once, and it's a USB or SCSI II interface, this is a terrific scanning or email me for pricing details.

New Pocket Wizard cables for Nikon/Kodak/Canon digital cameras.....A cable to keep your camera "awake" during remote shoots....Order now for the Inauguration here in DC ! maybe ... Speaking of Pocket Wizard Cables, I have ONE remote camera cable left for the NC2000/DCS420 camera. If you still have one and use it for remotes, this is the ONLY cable that'll work with Pocket Wizard remotes...Call me or e-mail for details.

USED USED USED Digital Cameras ---

We have (1) Kodak DCS520 and (1) Canon D2000 that are "barely" used. Both have all the software, cables, a battery and a charger included and a 260Mb card, and they are in the original boxes! Both of the cameras have 600 or fewer shutter trips, so these are really just like new! Start your Xmas off right with either of these at $4000 each ...

DEMO Products ---

Another great way to save $$ around the holiday season, we have a Kodak 8670PS Digital printer (w/the paper tray) and a 90 Day Warranty at $4000 ! This unit sells new for $5470, plus $100 on the Paper Tray.

All of us here at Penn Camera want to wish you the very best and safe Holiday Season !! Thanks for all your support throughout the year ! You still have time to make those end of the year pre-tax purchases
