Penn Camera April News & Note
By Jeff Snyder

It was great to see so many of you a few weeks ago at the Northern Short Course in Hartford. The subscribers of "Sports Shooter" are true supporters, THANK YOU!

Now a few quickie notes on what's going on in the Industry----

Let's start with Nikon - Nikon's new Film Scanners have started to arrive. If you haven't read about them, take a look at the Coolscan IV ED, Super Coolscan 4000 ED and the Super CoolScan 8000 ED on Nikon's website The Super Coolscan 8000 ED is a multi-format, handling 35mm and 120mm, and both the 4000 & 8000 are USB and FireWire capable.

The latest scoop on the new D1X camera is that they should start to ship in late May, followed with the delivery of the D1H sometime in June. We are accepting orders for all of the cameras and scanners now, so contact me for pricing and with any questions.
