Really Right Stuff, the highly regarded camera support manufacturer, now has their extensive line of products at B&H. Before this announcement, the only way to buy RRS merchandise was directly from them through their own website, but having their inventory available at the largest photo retailer in the USA creates a few benefits for the consumer.
I myself recently purchased a brand new tripod from B&H only a month ago, but I first went into the store to compare a few different models in person before I bought one. Just reading spec sheets online about folded length, maximum heights, and weights is not enough for me. I need to see it with my own eyes, and now, being able to physically touch the merchandise in person before buying is great, but of course, this benefit is really only for locals.
Unfortunately for me, however, just one month ago, RRS was not announced yet as an available product, so it was not one of my choices, and I went with a different brand. After hours of comparing different models, I ended up buying a Gitzo myself. Had RSS been in the store at the time, I definitely 100% would have took their tripods into consideration and added them to my potential list. I have heard nothing but great things about their products from other photographers over the years.
Another benefit of this partnership is if you live in the United States, you will not be charged sales tax outside of New York, which is a huge plus. Besides tripods, RRS makes a variety of camera support products such as quick-release plates, ballheads, flash brackets, L-plates, clamps, straps, sliders, and much more.
