Sports Shooter Specials from Roberts
By Jody Grober

Greetings one and all, Sports Photogs, friends and the such. Another spring has come and gone, basketball was mostly a snooze, but hockey was fantastic. Now we turn our gaze towards baseball and look forward to football…yep it's another brand new summer. As with every summer I am at Rich Clarkson's Sports Photography Workshop and I imagine many of you are here with me.

Canon…EOS-1D have gotten a bit tight on supply so plan a bit early to make sure I can secure one for you…everything else from Canon is flying in and flying out, especially the EOS-10D, I have a special SS price.

I have the Versa-Flex 14x17x6 case on sale for $175.00 down from $299.00

My SUPER Lexar prices have been so well received I will continue them!

On the software front …I have the PhaseOne DSLR software in stock, I have special Sports Shooter pricing on Photomechanic 3.0 and 4.0 and I now have the IMAGEPRINT RIP from Colorbyte for great workflow on Epson printers. Call me for URLs for free demos versions. Also in stock is the Spyder with PrintFix Suite that calibrates your monitor and printer together so proofs look like they should.

Tamron's new 28-75/2.8 is here and holding it's own at a very affordable price.

Besides and Roberts used department on our web site, another fantastic place to find used gear is at our eBay store. We have some deals up there that are only up there … check it out.

AquaTech Sports Shields are all in stock and ready to protect your gear like nothing ever has before and now with the newly redesigned eye pieces, they are better than ever.

The new Fuji films, Velvia 100 and Astia 100 have arrived and they are very impressive. Both including Fuji's light balancing filtration layers.

In the world of batteries, as always we have our ultra low price on Everready AA lithiums and the full line of Digital Camera Battery batteries and cables are in stock.
I hope you all enjoyed pictures of my crack staff…but all kidding aside…they work very hard for you and they are a great bunch!!

So until next month, don't fall asleep during baseball and make sure whatever you do, you make it fun!!
