By Jeff Snyder

Photo by

Springtime in the Nation's Capitol...There's just nothing like it! The Cherry Blossoms hit peak this week, and the city is gorgeous, come & visit!

Congratulations to the DC area's own George Mason University men's basketball team---Final Four hysteria has hit DC !!!

OK, here's the latest scoop...

Nikon - How hot is the D200? WOW, I cannot remember a camera that has generated so much demand in so little time. For those of you that are lucky enough to be shooting the D200, I'm sure you're thrilled with the image quality & cleanliness of the files. For those that are still waiting on your D200, thank you for your patience, it's worth the wait!

Nikon's new 105 F2.8 MACRO AF/SW/VR is IN STOCK NOW !!!
NOTE - NPS (Nikon Pro Services) members, as one of the benefits of NPS membership, are offered priority delivery of D200's and other harder to find Nikon products. Contact NPS at

Canon - As of today, April 1st, canon has a new rebate program in effect,
which includes a $300 Rebate on the very popular EOS5D camera...The EOS 30D, EOS 5D, EOS 1D MARK II, and the EOS 1D MARK IIS cameras are all in stock for your last minute Final Four needs! Also, Canon's re-designed 85mm f1.2 L II/USM should be here any day, so if you're not on the list yet, call me.

Canon's new DC100 & DC40 mini DVD camcorders are a great addition to your
carry case...Capture spot news with these full featured, small very cool
new video cameras...

Apple - Penn Camera is an authorized Apple re-seller, and we'd be happy to assist you with your MacBook Pro or G5 configurations. We co-hosted the traveling Apple Aperture In Depth seminar recently here in DC. Vince Laforet spoke about his workflow at the Olympics, and how he streamlined the editing process by using Aperture. Aperture is certainly worth a good look. Call me with any questions at all. We stock iPods!!! And many of the accessories you have been thinking about, such as the Otterbox, so you're iPod will stay safe near the water on at the beach this summer...Always check with us 1st.

Think Tank - Ok, by now, you've either seen, heard about or have purchased Think Tank's Airport Security rolling case. They're in stock for immediate shipment to you! This is without a doubt the most functional rolling case that you will have seen yet! I've rolled mine onto over 20 flights, and it fit into every overhead with ease. Doug & Mike (ok, mostly Mike) put many hours into the design of the Airport Security, and it was all worth it!! A few more new products from Think Tank include the Steroid Speed Belt (just a bit wider and sturdier than the Pro Speed Belt), and the new Pixel Eclipse, a portable folding work tent for your laptop. It not only protects it from the elements, you'll be able to work in the sunshine!

Lexar 133X and SanDisk Extreme III are both hot and the prices are DOWN. Bulk up your memory card wallets before baseball season hits...Lexar's Pro High Speed readers have been extremely popular, durable and stackable too!

NOW in stock, the new GorillaPod...The GorillaPod firmly secures your compact digital camera to just about anything...anywhere and everywhere. Unlike traditional tripods, the GorillaPod doesn't require an elevated flat surface for you to take the perfect shot.

NIK Software is now available too - Here's what we're now stocking for you:

Delkin's DVD BurnAway is a multi-function, portable device which integrates a slim Combo DVD/CD Writable, media player and USB 2.0 card reader.
