Penn Camera's News & Notes for January
By Jeff Snyder

WOW has it been a whirlwind week here in the DC much going on with the Presidential Inauguration, not to mention all the hoopla surrounding the parties. It has been great to see many of you here visiting us, and to hear from you.

Let's see... Nikon has announced three new scanners, which hopefully will become available in the next few months. Take a look at all the specs on their site D1's are here and available, as are F100's, N80's and the entire line of CoolPix Digital Cameras from Nikon.....

Canon's D30 continues to be a hot item, and stock is very good as of this writing. All of the accessories for the D30 are in stock as well. Canon's G1 and S100 Digital's continue to fly off the shelves....

The new and improved HOODMAN cover for the D1 has arrived. Hoodman USA has improved the cover so that it goes on and off the body easier and it also now has a scratch resistant coating......

One of the hottest new products that we have in stock is the "Digital Wallet" from Minds@Work. This 6GB portable storage device, will hold all of your images once your memory cards are full, so that you can keep on shooting! It'll also hold MP3's as well and now for a limited time, when you purchase the "Digital Wallet" at $499, we'll include an extra NiMh Battery and a Leather case too! And FREE ground shipping for Sports Shooter readers!

Speaking of memory Lexar's Cash Rebates are still in effect, and will continue through 03/31/01. I have some NEW pricing on Lexar Cards, contact me for details! For all the rebate info, look at

Microtech now has a 192mb Compact Card that is being touted as a 10X card at a very attractive price too!

Next month is the annual PMA (Photo Marketing Association) show in Orlando, and this is the event where MANY new products are announced and shown for the first time, so I expect to have BIG news sometime around the middle of February, in time for the next Sports Shooter issue!

If you see a guy in a Penn Camera shirt at the Super Bowl in Tampa, stop him and say Hi!!! It'll be me wandering around

Stay warm!
