Our grand prize this year is the all new 10.2-megapixel Sony DSLR-A100K Digital SLR. The new Sony alpha DSLR-A100 combines Sony's mastery of digital technology with Minoltas 21-year heritage. The new DSLR features a 10-megapixel image sensor along with Sony's Super SteadyShot® in-camera image stabilization, Dynamic Range Optimizer, and new Anti-Dust technology to keep the CCD imager clean for better pictures.
Lensbaby 2.0 Flexible Lens System
The Lensbaby 2.0 is a revolutionary lens designed to create an in-focus "hot" spot that can be controlled by the photographer. The in-focus or out-of-focus areas are controlled by squeezing and bending the lens. This 50mm f2.0 lens also includes aperture rings to reduce the aperture size. Lensbaby 2.0 is available with a Nikon F mount, Canon EF Mount, Minolta Maxxum Mount, Pentax K Mount, Olympus 4/3rds (E) Mount, Leica R Mount, Canon FD Mount, Minolta Manual Focus Mount, or with a Screw Mount for older Pentax, Mamiya, Fujica, and Praktica 35mm film SLR bodies.
ZAP-SHOT RF Wireless Remote for Canon Rebel XT
The ZAP-SHOT is a wireless remote trigger for the Canon EOS 300D, EOS 350D, Digital Rebel, and Digital Rebel XT that use Radio Frequency to trigger the shutter release of the camera. By using RF, the photographer is able to trigger the camera from up to 75 feet (or more) away and without a line-of-sight limitation. Unlike a remote cable switch, the ZAP-SHOT allows you the freedom to operate your camera's shutter without having to touch or even be near the camera and unlike infra-red you do not need line-of-sight. The ZAP-Shot will work through windows and walls.
