Meet B&H: The Camera Bag Isles

Camera bags are items that not only safeguard our tried and true gear, but they're also items that we can't have enough of. As a guy that owns six of them himself, I can attest to this statement. On the second floor of the B&H SuperStore, we have isles of camera bags on display for visitors to try for themselves. Whether you're the backpack lover or want a messenger bag, you're bound to find the right choice for you here.

Scenes from the New York Photo Festival Press Preview

Yesterday, I visited the B&H Booth at the New York Photo Festival in Brooklyn, and I also attended the tour for the Press, with a group of many other reporters. During the tour, the group was taken from one gallery to another, where the works of various photographers and multimedia artists were on display. Much of the work was absolutely fascinating. Seeing photos of the work cannot compare with seeing them in person, in the environments in which they are displayed. 

The Festival takes place from now until May 15th, and is definitely worth checking out if you need inspiration or if you want to get some fresh new ideas. Here are some scenes from the Press tour—all shot with the Fuji X100.

Tools of the Trade: B&H EDU Dept Goes to NYFA

When I was a communications student back in college, the first thing I said when my professor put professional gear in front of me was, "Oooooooo, toys!" That is how many students at the New York Film Academy reacted recently when the B&H EDU Advantage Team visited to show the future filmmakers some tools of the trade.

Buying or Selling Used Gear?

To get to the Camera Department at the B&H SuperStore in midtown Manhattan you have to take the stairs or escalator up to the second floor. What greets you at the top of the steps is a wall-to-wall array of photo gear. Across the tops of the wraparound display cases are the signature signage of Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Pentax, Sony, Leica, Panasonic, and others. But wait (a voice in your head says)... his is only the Used Department. The new cameras are located around the bend in a humongous area about 6 times larger. Welcome to B&H, the largest camera store on the planet.
