It was a year ago that we introduced the A610 and A620 to the dental market and now Canon has updated them with some nice improvements. The body style is esentially the same, but the new A630 and A640 benefit from a larger LCD screen (2.5" vs. 1.8") and the cameras get a resolution bump. The A630 is an 8 megapixel camera and the A640 is a 10 megapixel camera.

Canon also moved the memory card slot from the side of the camera to inside the battery door. To make it easier to remove the memory card and batteries, we have redesigned our closeup attachment kit so that there is
no longer anything that mounts under the camera. The new attachment now attaches directly to the lens mount and still allows fast and easy removal for portrait views and recreational use. More...

Canon and Nikon are both offering rebates through next year (Jan 13 for Canon - Jan 28 for Nikon). Canon is offering rebates on the popular 30D and 5D bodies along with the Canon 100mm macro lens and Canon macro flashes. As they have done in the past, if you combine products that are on the rebate list, you double all of the individual rebate amounts. For example, the 30D with Canon 100mm macro lens and MR-14EX ring flash gets you a total of $290 back from Canon. The same lens and flash on the Canon 5D gets you $690 back!

Nikon is offering a rebate on the R1 Wireless Speedlight. The rebate amount is only $15, but it doubles to $30 if you also purchase a D80 or a D200 body.

Canon surprised everyone with the announcement of a new G-Series digital camera. We have had great success with our Canon G cameras and it appeared that the G6 was going to be the last one. Canon has offically announced the G7 and it looks like it will be a very nice camera. The new
G7 will be a 10 megapixel camera outfited with a 6x optical zoom lens
(35-210mm equiv.). When combined with our closeup attachment kit, this lens should allow you to photograph an area approimately 3/4" wide.

We have the camera in house and have been working with it. It looks like
it will work very nicely. We hope to have the G7 available in the next month or two. If you would like more info, email or call (800-998-7765) and we will
add you to the list to contact when it
is available.

You can also check out the Canon G7 web page for more information.
Canon recently released the successor to the Rebel XT - the new
