New Year News & Notes from Penn Camera
By Jeff Snyder

What a busy few weeks ...

Let's start with Super Bowl XXXVI...

Penn Camera will be setting up shop in the Media Center trailers again this year at the Super Bowl in New Orleans. Check us out at the big game for all your last minute needs. STOP by and mention that you saw us in Sports Shooter...It could be your lucky day!

Next stop ... Winter Olympic Games 2002 - Salt Lake City We will not be there in person, BUT, ANYTHING you need, or find yourself in need of, I can FEDEX overnight to your door. Call me anytime at 1-800-347-5770, or email, or AOL Instant Messenger: JeffPennCamera. Our inventories are full up on all Nikon and Canon glass as well as bodies. Hopefully between now and the time the games get underway, we'll have some more EOS1-D's in stock for you...

NEW Photo-Fax Digital Rain Coats ... These have been re-designed and now have a clear window on the rear so that you can see your LCD's. Available for both the Nikon and Canon digital cameras in sizes from short zooms to 600mm. The NEW and exciting Digital Camera Raincoats are in stock...If you have one of the original versions, they can be retro-fitted with the clear window panel at a cost of $15.

DIGITAL CAMERA BATTERY ... We are now stocking the line-up of the Digital Camera Battery's. These are GREAT for cold weather, because you can power your D1/H/X or you EOS1-D with it and place the power supply in a nice warm cozy place....for longer life in the chilly climates (ala Salt Lake). You can also power your strobe and cameras at the same time via two cables. If you haven't seen these yet, take a look:

NIKON ... As you probably already know, has an "Instant $500 Rebate" off the selling price of both the D1X and D1H....They are in stock & flying out the door with this savings. The Lens rebates are in full swing as well, with savings up to $400 on lenses...Both of the rebate programs expire at the end of March 2002.

CANON ... I have to hand it to my customers, you are all so patient, well at least most of you (you know who you are)....EOS1-D cameras have been coming in slowly, but we are hoping that by the time the Olympics begin, the cameras will free up a bit more. For those of you that have an order in with us, I'll contact you prior to shipping....I do have NPE3 batteries here for the 1D' well as all of the Canon lenses you could possibly want. And as a reminder, there are some healthy rebates in effect too....

MICROTECH....NEW pricing just in for the highly rated, 256mb HIGH SPEED and 512mb HIGH SPEED Compact Flash cards from Microtech. Get this, 256mb $139, and 512mb $399. Both in stock for immediate delivery.

LEXAR ... The NEW Lexar 1GB 16X Type II Compact Flash card will be available in early February. We are accepting orders now at a special introductory me.

FUJI ... Fuji's Pictrography Digital printers are the "best" out there....The prices on the PG3500 and PG4000-II have recently been reduced. Call me now for the promotions associated with these printers. The Fuji S1 camera remains very popular, and are in stock!

DIGITAL WALLET 3GB close-out! We have a limited supply of the 3GB Digital Wallets, with a FREE case at $199, while supplies last.

Good luck to all at the upcoming events.
