Inside B&H conveyor system…

If you are a photo buff then you most probably know about the mothership of all photo stores, B&H, here in NYC. The most fascinating part of B&H has always been their conveyor system. Let’s say you decided to buy a new lens, you’re on the third floor, they’ll put that lens into a basket that then is being transported down to the register at the exit, silently ‘floating’ through the store.

The Lense folks secretly put a camera into one of the baskets to see how it works from the inside. Again, this might be only fascinating if you have actually been to B&H.

  1. this is so unbelievably great (i just wish it went into the money-laundering room…)

  2. that is fantastic!

  3. I never noticed this when I was there! I must be quiet too! Very cool.

  4. It’s interesting but seems like a whole lot of wasted energy when a customer could simply carry the item to the checkout…so much for the environment…!

  5. Great video! I wonder if they ever get stuck in the conveyor belt and one of them has to poke the crates with a broom to get it moving again. I’d like to think so!

  6. The added Portal voices of the turrets made this video that much more awesome.

  7. A great little video. I am really surprised at just how fast the conveyor belt moves.

  8. The system that they offer here is so good. You are able to get so much from what they offer with. The creator has done so good here. Soap making supplies Toronto
