The NBA strike --- I mean work stoppage--- is over. The Dodgers could be in the hands of a new owner by Spring Training. And UCLA is headed to the first-ever Pac-12 Championship Game.

Life is good again in So Cal!

With that, Samy's Camera has some news and specials for the Sports Shooter Nation!

Get that cool, fun P.O.V. (that's point-of-view for the uninitiated) with one of the small sports video cameras... We have the Contour HD wearable video camera on sale for $199 and the very popular GoPro Hero helmet cam for $239 and the surfboard mount model for $229. Also check with us for all of the various mounting hardware and accessories for these cool POV cameras.

The Sony NEX-5 compact interchangeable lens camera is now on special with the versatile 18-55mm zoom lens for $498.00. The NEX-5 features full High-def video at 1080/60i movies, astounding low-light image quality, continuous shooting up to 7 fps, incredible panorama shots, and LiveView with a tilting 3.0-inch LCD screen.

And speaking of Sony, if you're in the market for a small HD handycam, we are running a special on the HDR-CX160 for $349. The CX160 features 1920x1080 full HD 60p capture with 3-megapixel still image, 16GB embedded Flash Memory for up to 6 hours of recording, wide angle G lens, 42x extended zoom and back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensor for superb low-light video quality.
