Mid Summer Specials from Roberts Distributors
By Jody Grober

Greetings to all from Indy. I look forward to seeing many of our Sports Shooter friends here this weekend for the Brickyard and it was nice seeing some of you at the RCA Tennis Tournament. I can finally get some sleep now that the TOUR is over and I'm not driven to watch every night until 2:00 am...what a great race this year. There were a number of Sports Shooters over there and I can't wait to hear from them first hand.

Nikon News ...Very, very, very, very exciting news from Nikon. Nikon announced last week seven, yes seven, count them, seven new products. Specs are at the link following or call me and we can go over them.

Canon News ...Very important news if you use certain Canon SLR bodies. If you use an ELAN 7 or EOS10D some Sigma lenses will not work correctly and will need to be sent back to Sigma for updating. This link will take you to the Sigma site for more details.

Our covert spy camera caught images of the all new Dynalite location battery pack last month at Rich Clarkson's Sports Photography Workshop. This puppy will power just about anything...power packs, computers, jamboxes, whatever...more to come next month.

While we are on Dynalite ... they will send you a free head if you purchase a pack and two heads. This won't last long so act now.

Sandisk has joined the big boys in the compact flash size and speed wars. Currently on our shelves are the all new 1 GB, 6Mb per second CF cards from Sandisk, plus there's a $30.00 mail in rebate.
Check them out at Rob Galbraith's site:
Here's the link to purchase:
