Winter Specials From Roberts Distributors
By Jody Grober

Greetings to one and from Indy…the holder of the honor of being on the wrong end of the second greatest blowout in NFL playoff history.

Good luck to everyone in the Annual Sports Shooter photo contest.

AquaTech is in stock in all sizes and can ordered via phone, 800-726-5544, or via the web site, This is the ultimate in rain protection.

Nikon is continuing the D-1H and D-1X rebates. Call us for price and availability. There are also rebates on some of their professional lenses.

Canon's new 24-70mm zoom.
Canon's EOS-1D is readily available now and flying out the door, this camera is the real deal! The new EOS-1Ds is proving to be holding it's own with the critics and for certain purposes it is unsurpassed. The new EF24-70/2.8 has starting shipping, so call us and get on the list right away. All other Canon is in stock and ready to ship.

Lexar special prices are due in next week. I hear they are going to be good, so call me next week and I will let you know.

Epson has a $1000.00 rebate going on the 'big boy', the 10600 . The more popular 7600 Ultrachomes can ship today! 2200 Epsons are in stock as well, as are the light magenta and light cyan inks that are so hard to get a hold of.

Tokina glass is still a great alternative for the budget minded shooter and they have some great deals:
80-200/2.8...$539.00 after $60.00 mail-in rebate
28-80/2.8...$499.00 after $50.00 mail-in rebate
300/2.8...$2099.00 after $200.00 mail-in rebate

It is time to start thinking about attending Rich Clarkson's Sports Photography workshop. Click on the link below and check it.

Versa-Flex's new Dual-Lens Case with removable wheels will be here in the next couple of weeks. IT IS A WINNER.

And there is a rumor of a brand new design of rolling carry-on from Lightware…ooh how exciting.

In the news also is a mid-summer roll out of a rechargeable battery pack able to power any 1000ws lighting unit…and it is from my friends at Dynalite. Some of you saw the prototype at Rich Clarkson's Workshop last year.

Elinchrom's return of the old favorite 500 w/s monoblock was received better than expected. Call me to get on the list for this super unit for small arena lighting. It comes in a 2 light kit for only $995.00.

Well that's it from Indy. Make sure to make it fun and I'm outta here.
