This is why I buy everything from B & H. Free shipping. When you are buying video equipment, cameras, tripods, bulky big stuff, free shipping is a very big deal. Secondly, and as important as free shipping - B & H always has the lowest price. It's amazing that whenever I am ready to buy a large video item, they always seem to be at or below everyone else AND they have free shipping. I do my comparison shopping on Nextag which brings up all the good camera and video retailers and B & H beats everyone. Combine prices with their knowledge, service, warranties, fast shipping and there is just nowhere else you should purchase professional video products. And they have free shipping. Did I mention that? :) It's a blog. I can add a smiley face if I want to.
