By Louis Feldman

Leica D-LUX 2
It was wonderful to see and meet so many students and photographers at the Sports Shooter Commuter Short Course in early November in Ventura. It was an exciting program and Samy's Camera was very proud to play a small part in this educational event.

Here's what we have for you Sports Shooter readers for Holiday Specials:

• Apple Mac Mini: FREE 1 gb of RAM with the purchase of these super desktop computers. The 1.25 GHz is priced at an affordable $399 and the 1.42 GHz is going for $499. For more info on the Mini's tech specs, check Apple's site for details ( and call us to place your order! We have Mini's in stock ready to ship.

• We're in the home stretch, heading toward the Holidays (Christmas and Chanukah will be here before you know it!) the Apple iPod Nano is just the gift idea for that hard-to-buy loved one ... especially photographers who have to wait in line at stadiums, arenas and airports!

• Another great gift idea is the Magellan Roadmate 760 portable GPS. Never get lost again with the Roadmate 760 which features a 3.8" anti-glare touch screen, turn-by-turn directions, four different routing options, an address book that stores over 200 destinations ... and much more!

• Looking for the ultimate point & shoot camera? The new Leica D-LUX 2 8-megapixel camera with a 28-112 zoom is the perfect thing for the working photographer who wants to take great photos but not lug around their big, heavy DSLRs. The D-LUX gives you three options for image size, the ability to shoot video with sound, image stabilization, 5 auto-focus options, a wide range of exposure and metering options and best of all? It's a COOL looking Leica!
