B&H prices

Does anyone know if B&H will adjust some price down if you can prove that a non-gray goods shop has a better price on a product they also sell?

I have read from people getting a price reduction if immediately following a purchase they did B&H lowered that specific price, but I don't know what's their policy on other vendors prices.

I heard that if you phone them or e-mail them, they will give you the real, adjusted price.

I haven't heard back yet. It's only been 1 hour since I e-mailed B&H. When I get it, I'll post it.

I can live with that. Locally, I can't even find them.

Having spent 30G+ at B&H I can tell you they wont lower the price of anything they sell because of an advertised lower price somewhere else- they feel their prices are fair and don't budge- if you saw the operation they have you'd understand their "if u don't buy it- someone else will" attitude.......not necessarily good or bad- that's just the way B&H operates!

I have 2 cop buddies who shop there as well and they've never gotten B&H to lower a price ever!!!

Is that a shock mount that can be slipped into a hot shoe, and will it hold a small, thin mic like the Apex 191? How much is it?

Steve, there's B&H's published prices on their site, and their true price. I've only ordered from B&H a couple of times and I am going with what others have said about this---who order stuff from them all the time.

Bryan Beasleigh found me that mount (and link and mic), and he was also one of the fellows who mentioned about the 2 prices thing at B&H.

well you need a little adapter to fit it into a shoe http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...u=68160&is=REG the upside of this is that you can use the mount itself on a boom too.

The apex should fit in without any problems, i see it listed as 22mm in diameter and the specs on the at8415 are,

Minimum Microphone Diameter 0.50" (12.7 mm)
Maximum Microphone Diameter 2.13" (54.1 mm)

as per http://audio-technica.com/guide/othe...nts/index.html scroll down to see the 8415

I just think that being able to use as a boom mount too is a great advantage.

How much is the AT8415 at B&H?

That hot shoe adaptor is made for a hot, hotshoe, is it? ? (I only want to mount the mic there.)

Why is this one better than the one I'm thinking of getting? Is it too big for the Apex 191?

I'm only going to be using it on my hotshow, but sometimes mounted to my tripod/head.

Thanks.

Oh, and I haven't heard back from B&H yet. Perhaps later today. I'm thinking of also picking up the 852, if they have any left. I've always liked that cam once "BB" convinced me to go have a look at one---that Sony TRV38 is nice too, for the money, but not as nice as the 852.

Tavis,

According to the specifications of the Beyerdynamic EA86 Shockmount on the B&H site, it can be mounted either on a hotshoe or a pole:

Key Features


• Camera mount shock absorbing shotgun microphone holder
• Universal, works with most all cameras and shotgun microphones
• Easy to use, simple, compact, one piece, sturdy construction
• Isolates microphone from moving, vibration, bumps and motor hum, etc.
• Built-in (male) shoe mount adapter
• Threaded hole underneath enables vidiographer to mount this housing on a fish pole, or microphone stand, etc.

You don't have to buy any other adaptor unlike the AT.

Or am I missing something?
