Call to the Post: Derby Specials from Penn Camera

Think Tank Remote Control 10 rain cover.
It's time to Spring into Summer. Triple Crown season is upon us with the Kentucky Derby's "Run for the Roses" just days away. The statement "The most exciting 2 minutes in Sports" is absolutely true. If you've never experienced "The Derby", you should make plans to be there, even as a spectator.If you can be in Louisville for Derby weekend (May 5-6), and see me, please say hi.

In time for spring/summer outdoor shooting, make sure that you have your Think Tank Remote Covers. Keep your gear protected while you're not sitting/standing next to it. No more black trash bags leaking rain on your gear. The Think Tank Remote Control 10 will protect your camera/Pocket Wizard with lenses up to 70-200, and the Remote Control 20 will protect camera/Pocket Wizards with lenses from 300mm to 600mm. At $49 & $59 these are a bargain!

These are shown in the images with optional OverXposed remote plates with Red Risers, which are also available, OverXposed has recently added a 1/2 Height Red Riser, to get your camera even lower to the ground.

What's new?
