So I hope this alternative will help you for sure, if you have lost the original plate of your Benro T880EX tripod.
Once I went on a outdoor shoot on a nearest beach.
Took my tripod and some basic gear with me. Instead of keeping the plate in my bag. I kept it in the back pocket of my pants. And went straight into water for having some fun. After having a wonderfully exciting day when we were getting ready for returning home. I realized that the cap was missing. Searched a lot, in and out of water, everywhere possibly. But we didn’t find the plate unfortunately. I thought what’s a big deal in losing just a plate. So our trip ended and we all came home.
Now here’s were the things get interesting, I am trying to search on the internet for the same plate. But cost of it is pretty similar to the whole of tripod. Maybe because it was shipped from outside of Bharat. And not a lot of websites had the same plate available. So then started looking for some alternates, but nothing looked compatible with my tripod. I even thought of getting a new tripod. And then after searching a lot, found one plate, was not sure about whether it will fit with it. But the cost was not so much. So decided to give it a try and finally ordered that one.
The product was delivered safe and secure.
But still the question was the same will it fit my tripod. And then I opened the package and surprisingly the quality of a cheaper alternative was so good. I didn’t expect that, even better then the original. Took the plate and pulled the trigger and slided the plate in. The plate was compatible and I danced like I won the world cup that day. My tripod was happy and so do I. That’s a happy ending story of my tripod.
Jokes apart, the quality of this product is really good. If you have lost the original plate of your Benro T880EX tripod. Then this one fits perfectly with it. I would highly recommend you to go for it. Click the red texted button to buy it right now.
The Benro T880EX is a tripod stand that is very close to my heart. Because I literally use it for every video that I shoot. And till this date, I would have shot more then 500 professional and home videos with it.
I have actually completed 4 years since I first bought it. And I tell you that the product is nearly in the same condition as new. So without wasting time, lets get straight into the pros and cons of this tripod.
The Benro T880EX is made of two kind of material.
One is hard matte finish plastic. And the other is strong metal rods which is used for the legs of it. Each leg as three levels of extensions, so the height of it is as follows, Approximately around about 5.3 Feet. The total weight of the Benro Tripod is 1.76 Kilograms (3.88 Pounds).
The tripod comes in completely black color look which is the only color to choose from.
It also comes with beautiful simple black case which I thought of being of an average quality but still after 4 years of use the bag is in very good condition. Benro also give you a manual with it, after going through this article I am pretty sure that won’t be needed.
The head of tripod is quite smooth and easy to use. Which is going to be helpful for some panning camera movements. It can pan full 360 degree right to left or left to right, also can be panned top to bottom. The size of this tripod is on a proper side, not so big and bulky but at the same very stable, easy to carry, specially when using it for outdoor shoot, it’s really not going to take a lot of space as you can just carry it on your back like a shoulder bag. The company claims that it could take weight of around about 3000 gms, incase you do use those big heavy lenses here are some other tripod stand options from benro that will surely help you.
One more cool feature it has, is the water bubble which is very helpful feature.
Specially, when you shoot on an uneven fields or places like the mountains. This feature will definitely help you to level the camera angles. This is with the canon 700d attached to the tripod, securely locked it. And this is with a smartphone. quite safe and securely locked in with it.
If you are going to use it for your mobile device, then here’s another tool that is going to be needed in order to hold the device, And talking about the mobile users, most of you guys are interested in filming the mobile camera in a portrait mode rather the landscape mode in this short video social media world. so you can actually rotate the head to 90 degree by just turning one key.
Now if you have a heavy camera will that take the weight,
yes for sure it will but when shooting vertical with heavy camera the tripod could tilt and fall down, the solution to that is, and by the way this is a pro tip from most film makers who use this trick everyday, get a sack bag, fill that with some sand and stones, seal it properly and tie it to the tripod leg on the opposite side of the heavy side, that’s it, problem solved.
The tripod plate that comes with it is good but it is detachable that means the chances of losing it is more.
I am saying this with my personal experience, I once went on a shoot on a beach after the shoot was completed I kept the tripod plate in my pants, which was a big mistake because after that I went inside the water and there my tripod plate got lost in the massive waters of Indian ocean. so long story short, don’t misplace it. The problem is finding the original plate is difficult and even if you find one online, the cost of it is going to be very near to the tripod price then what’s the point in buying the plate.
But relax guys, I also have a solution for that as well, so in case you lost the plate, this is the plate which fits exactly like the original one in fact the quality is slightly better then the original and this a plate which is very cheap is price, so there you go, Plus the plate that you see in the video is the same alternative, the original one was lost as said you before. So this was my review of the Benro Tripod stand.
I hope you got the answers to what you were looking for. And remember one thing that I am writing this review after using this product for 4 years. Of course not a sponsored video. So if you are interested in buying this tripod stand. I would highly recommend you to get it right now by clicking the red texted button below.
Incase there is a power failure in your local place. Don’t use it for extra time just because you can.
Well it can be used but not recommended, for that you have other devices in the market such as the invertors and the generators.
I have to tell you that, APC has done a very good job when it comes to the quality of the product.
Plus the looks and the feel of it also is very professional and not like some cheap gear. As I said before that the run time depends on what you use it for, if it is a heavy running task like video rendering then the machine is going to beep faster and if the task is a light weight running one, like copy pasting files then it will beep slower in speed.
This device is very easy to use.
just plug all your cables like the SMPS power cable, monitor power cable and internet modem adapter at the back of it and connect the main UPC power cable to the source, that’s it. If you wish, you can also connect your speakers to it but that is something which is optional, it’s up to you, the more devices you connect the faster the power drains.
Before buying this APC just make sure that how much power your computer consumes that will save you money if you are a basic user. And by basic user, I mean people that have got basic configuration of their computers. Just built computer for things like browsing, playing low graphical games, streaming full HD video content or movies etc. Can you this UPC. But these were some tasks that I used to explain you in a better way. In this technological world things can change very fast. For most regular computer users this is going to be fine.
But if you are looking for a UPS for gaming computer or for your video editing beast then I have also made a review about it’s elder brother that is the APC UPS 1100. Check it out, if the 600 is insufficient for you.
The computer monitor will consume energy as follows, this can change depending upon what company device you are using,
Runtime with Basic configured PC – 20-30 Minutes Charging Time UPS – 5 Hours, 20 Minutes Runtime with just Internet Modem – 2 Hours These stats are without the battery mode activated.
And the average home internet modem use 3 watts to 6 watts, once again it all depends on your device.
600 VA – 360 W 1100 VA – 660 W
600 VA is equal to 360 Watts, So it all depends on the power of your SMPS that is the power supply device in your computer. And you add a little more power for the internet modem and the monitors. Together if the power is below 360 Watts, it will work for you. Otherwise go for the 1100.
As I have upgraded to the APC 1100, I am currently using the APC 600 for my TV and sound system,
which is actually great because now I don’t to miss any last over cricket moments if there’s any power failure. All thanks to APC UPS.
This APC 600 and the APC 1100 both comes with surge protection which makes it more safe for your components. It has a got a battery saver mode which reduces the run time of the UPS but increases the life of your battery.
