Early Winter Specials from Roberts Distributors
By Jody Grober

Greetings from Indy where all we can do watch other cities baseball teams…give us a little time…we'll get in the majors. In the meantime I side with Brad.

The 2002 NPPA Flying Short Course crew.
Many thanks to everyone that showed up at the 5 NPPA Flying Short Course locations. As always it is great to put faces to the voices. Kudos to the great speakers, especially my new hero, Marty Lederhandler, on the last day of a grueling yet fun week.

Aquatech rain covers, the Ferrari of rain protection, are in stock and very hot.

To buy:

With all the excitement from the Photokina announcements we have started lists for the Kodak DCS 14n, the Canon EOS-1Ds, the Canon 24-70/2.8L, and the Nikon 70-200/2.8G AF-S. Call to today to get on the queues or email me at

News from Nikon…rebates are in full bloom…firmware upgrades start soon, check out this site for details …and there is a new buffer upgrade to double your D-1X buffer available directly from Nikon.

Cool news from Canon…rebates are good through January…I ran the 1Ds through its paces and it passed with flying colors…the 24-70/2.8 ETA has not yet been announced…the EOS-1Ds has not been priced yet but we are hoping to start receiving them in December (no promises though).
I have a few of the Lexar 1 Gb cards at the special promo price. Also from Lexar…every 24x purchase comes with one Lexar FireWire reader at no charge.

Fuji has announce the new Pictrographic 4500 and they will start shipping soon. We are receiving the FinePix S-2 slowing but steadily so if you are waiting it shouldn't be long now and if you are not yet on our list call soon.

Until next month work hard and have fun!
