I think anybody who is interested in video gear has to have ended up on the website of B&H at one time or another. They are a gear “Superstore” based in New York. My guess (and it’s only a guess) would be that next to Amazon and Ebay, they are the largest gear retailer in North America.
I like two things specifically about them. One: they almost always have stock, especially of products new to the market. I try to shop locally/nationally when I can, but the demands of the film business are unforgiving. When clients need something, they want it Yesterday, forget about 2-3 weeks from now. Two: I like the organization of their web site. Even if I don’t intend to buy from B&H, their website is an incredible resource to compare and discover categories of gear.
A business as big as theirs is not without some controversy, I’ll let you decide how you feel about that. I also wish they would stop sending out their paper catalogue. It’s 3/4″ thick. Is there anyone who uses it in the age of the internet? That’s a lot of dead trees.
