What a great sports weekend: Seahawks going to their first Super Bowl. "The Bus" returns home to Detroit after the Steels whack the Broncos. And Kobe GOES OFF for 81 point against the Raptors!

I haven't seen a more widely anticipated bag or case in recent years like the new Think Tank Photo Airport Security roller. This smartly designed and constructed case is not only versatile --- 400 2.8? No problem. Medium format gear? No sweat. 3 digital bodies, 5 lenses? Easy! --- it fits in the overhead compartment of most airliners! You've heard the talk. Read the message board about it. And it's now available! Give Samy's a call to get pricing info and order your Airport Security roller ... NOW! Remember: When you think Think Tank, think Samy's Camera!

Out in the field for hours ... or even days at a time? The Epson P2000 and P4000 photo storage devices are IN STOCK at Samy's. The P-2000 features and 40 GB hard drive, while big brother P-4000 sports a 60GB hard drive. No need for power or a laptop, this portable viewer/storage device has a big 3.8-inch LCD screen, built in card slot and runs on an interchangeable, rechargeable battery. Imagine clearing your cards while you're still out on location shooting ... or driving back to the office. Call Samy's for a special Sports Shooter pricing!

Nikon has a WINNER in the new D200. This new digital SLR features:
• 10.2 megapixel DX Format CCD image sensor
• 5fps high-speed continuous shooting in continuous bursts of up to 22 NEF (RAW) or 37 JPEG (FINE - LARGE) shots
• Durable, Magnesium alloy (Mg) body
• Large viewfinder with 0.94x magnification and Large 2.5-inch LCD monitor
• Built-in Speedlight
• 100 to 1600 (ISO equivalent) in steps of 1/3, 1/2 or 1 EV with additional settings up to 1 EV over 1600

There is still a few days left on a Samy's web special on SanDisk Extreme III 1GD compact flash cards: $79.95 after a $20 manufacturer's rebate!
