Really Right Stuff Tripods and Photography Accessories Now Available at B&H Photo

Really Right Stuff Tripods and Photography Accessories Now Available at B&H Photo

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. You can check out their current lineup at B&H Photo here. The inventory should broaden over the following weeks as they gradually add more merchandise.

Yes they are not cheap, but there are also many other brands out there that are much more expensive than RRS too.

Thanks, Kyle. Something was up, so I re-added the link. It should be working now.

This is the best news I've heard all day... yes, it's been a slow news day... But still excited! Do you know if the listed items are available for gawking and manhandling on the showroom floor yet? Either way I guess they can always bring it up from downstairs for playtime... FYI - for those of you outside of NYC who have not had the pleasure, you really must find time for a pilgrimage to B&H sometime, it's really the most amazing store on the planet for photo equipment and accessories. It's like a Photography Expo every day of the week. And for those of us in the city, the ability to walk back in to the store within 30 days and return something is icing on the cake!

I'm not sure if they actually have them on the sales floor yet, but like you said, they would be more than happy to bring them out just for you. Many times I was in the store to see a specific item not on display, and they always brought stuff out just for me. Besides great prices and selection, their customer service is second to none.

Finally.

Been depositing my hard earned $$ to RRS for years and being spoilt with B&H's free shipping and no tax (I'm in CA) it always irked me having to fork off another ~10% in tax/shipping fee for already extremely expensive gear.

Ever since RRS "updated" their website about a year or two ago, it's been a nightmare to navigate with horrendous layout and links, along with broken images, etc. I've had a few interactions with their head of marketing/web and looks like they've been having some major issues with the web developer whom they've outsourced their website to.

Should be a great development for everyone!

I forgot to even mention the free shipping! Good point!

I almost didn't want to move to NYC because I'd lose the "no sales tax" from B&H... and in NYC it's more like a "turn you upside down and shake tax". But alas, the city of my birth called and I came running with open arms! I guess I could have it shipped to friends in NJ... shudder...

Huh. Well I guess it will get them more exposure at least. I have used their products since the early 90s when I had my Minolta

Thank god!

Now if they can only have products in stock and not have to wait 3 weeks after you order. Even went to RRS' own Website and almost every product is out of stock. Not sure if they had a really big Christmas bonanza or retooling their line up, but nothing's in stock.
