As said before I was looking for a new camera (Camera Shopping), and I was also up for a trip to New York, and when in New York the best place to buy a new camera is B&H. (B&H Photo Video – Electronics and Camera Store, located at 420 Ninth Avenue at the intersection with West 34th Street.)
It is the best store I can think of, because they carry everything one can wish, from the amateur photographer that needs a ”point & shoot”, to the real Professional Photographer looking for the latest mirrorless cameras or high-quality lenses. Not to mention the section for the movie makers.
Looking at the busy employees at the store it reminded me of a cartoon I saw over Christmas many years ago. It was the Santa factory, all in full speed preparing and packing the presents and then ingeniously send them to be delivered via a carousel.
That’s what they do there. Pick your choice, and you’ll get a ticket to bring to a counter, where someone picks the right item and send it down via an ingenious conveyer belt to the cashiers on the main floor. There you go down, and firm a line again–but it moves fast–pay and get your prized possession.
I just wonder how much the total amount at the main cash registers is at the end of a single day.
I contributed somehow to B&H income, I bought a bridge camera, though I knew ahead of time what I wanted, I changed my mind slightly and settled for a previous model because it was considerably more light. Having a camera that makes me reluctant to take along because if its weight is no good. After all, the best camera is always the one that is with you.
I started to shoot right out of the box–just the time to charge it–with the setting as they were.
So far, so good!
PS: Facebook knew I was heading to B&H, but doesn’t yet know that I got it already, I still receive advertisements for best offers. 😉😊
