Early Spring Specials From Roberts
By Jody Grober

Hello to everyone from the home of the NCAA getting ready for a fantastic FINAL 4 in some other city I can't remember the name of.

New at Roberts is the super technologies of SmartDisk for storage on the run!!! Description and spec links are below, but call me:

Extreme portability, striking design and high performance - a ground-breaking achievement in personal storage. Store up to five hours of superior quality video, more than 1,000 MP3 songs or more than 2,000 high-quality digital photos on a drive you can place in the palm of your hand. Smaller than a pack of playing cards, the four-ounce drive fits easily in your pocket or purse. When you need to get to your files, you do so at fast FireWire USB 2.0 speeds. Read and write at 12 MB/sec. That's 100 high-quality digital photos transferred in ten seconds!

FireLite from SmartDisk is a portable external hard drive that offers great looks, huge storage capacities and a trim design that makes it easy to carry and use either at your desk or on the go. One of the first things you'll notice about FireLite is its size: just 3 1/4 inches x 5 inches x 3/4 inch. But while FireLite is small in size, it offers a big storehouse for your applications and data. FireLite is available in 20 GB, 30 GB and 40 GB models to meet your storage needs.

FireWire™ Thin Drives with titanium styling are ideal for anyone who requires a high performance, lightweight and durable hard drive storage solution. The drives are perfect for transporting large files such as multimedia presentations between computers, archiving important files, creating backups of your laptop's hard disk, updating or installing software on multiple computers or simply sharing files between home and office.

Hasse deals on the 501CM while they last. I have some body only and kits at unbelievable prices.

Thanks to a very nice and technically sophisticated friend of the photographer I have available to anyone who wishes an excellent set up script for the Canon Eos-1D. This is the set up developed at the Olympics and it seems to work very well and answers many questions. Call me for a copy: 800-726-5544.

Congratulations to Nancy Mayo, winner of our Professional Photographer of Ohio trade-show raffle for the fantastic LowePro Stealth.
