Camera Cottage



Quotes Came down from Canada on a trip to Yellowstone and found Carter's Camera Cottage on the net. Stopped in and couldn't believe the selection of tripods and heads for a small start up shop (not to mention all the other gear he has to offer)! Carter is extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating well worth an 20 drive from Billings Mt. I highly recommend the Camera Cottage. Thanks again Carter for your great service, we will see you again! Quotes

Quotes I purchased a used tripod system from Carter: Bogen 3021 legs and a Bogen 3055 ballhead. Scale of 1-10, a borderline 11 for quality and condition. All at a very fair price. Quotes

Excellent tripod system

Quotes I could not believe the selection of great tripods in this little shop. I found exactly what I needed at a price that I couldn't match even on Ebay. Carter really KNOWS tripods and will talk your ear off about them, if you let him. I will be back! Quotes

Great tripod selection!

Quotes Many thanks for the fantastic response and unbelievably fast service you gave me for a Nikon lens purchase! A simple inquiry to all on the UHH website, MTShooter (Carter) replied back quickly that he had the lens I wanted, that is was basically mint, and gave me a very reasonable price. Shipment was made the very minute I paid, and sent 2nd day insured! Gorgeous lens that was as advertised. Many thanks again!!! I will be back! Quotes

Quotes A quick follow up. After using the Nest NT- 530H all I can say is I have absolutely no issues. Well made very nice quality. It is tight new but follow the instructions and brake it in. It takes fifteen minutes. I have been shooting birds, wildlife, and two days at a air show. Love it and would buy it again. Quotes

Quotes I ordered Nest NT- 530H very late on the 26th. I went out of town for three days the next day and when I returned home I was going to check my order status. but before I did I had to get the dog out for a run. Coming back I checked our mail. It was waiting for me. no need to check order status! Looks very nice and its mounted up so I hope to get some trial time tomorrow! Thank you for very good service. Quotes

Quotes I purchased the Nest Carbon Fiber Gimbal Head and I finally got a chance to use it with my New Sigma 150-600 f4-5.6 Sports lens. The gimbal makes it effortless to handle this lens on my tripod. I love the way it is fluid dampened. I must also say the service at the Camera Cottage is excellent. Thanks again for a great product and your advice! Quotes

Quotes I have bought a camera, a tripod, a bag, and other gear from Carter at the Camera Cottage. Great customer service. Great equipment. I'm glad that the Camera Cottage is now in Billings. Carter has a wealth of knowledge on photography, so I go there and pick his brain. Quotes

Quotes On the Ugly Hedgehog web site, Carter, (aka MTShooter), seemed to be the guy with the right answers. So, when in Montana I stopped to meet him. I heard customers ask about everything from film developing chemicals to details about current cameras and lenses. He always seemed to have the answer or a suggestion and was always pleased to share his vast knowledge. He obviously loves what he is doing. And, he is locked into customer service. After he demonstrated the NEST Gimbal head, we both knew I wasn't leaving without one, but my old tripod wasn't suitable and the budget was in trouble. He sold me a second hand, rock solid Manfrotto at a very reasonable price. He understood my needs and knew exactly how to fill them. If you get a chance to stop by his "Camera Cottage", you won't believe how much equipment he has in there. But, if you don't plan on being near Billings soon, then I'd highly recommend calling or emailing him about any photographic needs. Quotes
