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.
The benefits that the consumer get is substantially big as the maintaining the Inkjet printers and the printing cost is very high and if you talk about the Ink Tank printers. They are the really super heroes when it comes to color printing. The detailing that it provides is just amazingly awesome and too at an pocket friendly price point. So if you are looking for a color printer or a photo printer. Then you have come to the right place as in this article I am going to cover a beautiful device by Epson named L805 Ink Tank Photo Color Printer.
This is a very easy to use printer, it can be used with multiple devices, Computers, tablets, smartphones.
Plus the use of printer over the WIFI is a very simplified process thanks to the Epson printing app. It comes with buttons that light up. The connection with the computers is via a USB cable but as you know having a WIFI feature is very convenient.
The ink can be refilled just by opening the tanks on the right side. The printer comes with six different inks which are magenta, light cyan, black, yellow, cyan and light magenta. The printer uses the right combinations of these inks to give you the perfect colored documents. Rather then just talking about the printer, I am also going to print different photos with different colors and size. That will give you a brief idea about the quality of this printer.
The technical details, pricing or the buy link can be found here… If you are only looking for that. But this video article is all about the user experience and what I feel about the product. So for that, stay tuned till the very end of this article.
You don’t get the ‘printing on both side’ feature but that can also be done by printing single page at one time turning the sides manually.
If you have any doubts about how to use it or the setup process, don’t worry about that, after you receive your printer, just call the Epson customer care and they will send an expert for doing all the setup and will also give you a brief demo about the printer. You can ask him whatever you want, the installation is free.
The speed of the printer when printing monochrome that is the black and white documents is good.
Not as fast as a laser printers but the quality that you get is far more superior. The color printer on a regular plain paper will take a few seconds more but printing on a glossy photo paper will take forever. I mean it takes a lot of time to print the photos but about the quality, that you can see in the video. The results with glossy photo paper is far better then the plain paper, so much accurately detailed. And not just me but a lot of people are extremely happy with this device.
If can also do borderless printing if you wish to do that, the printing page sizes supported are as follows :
A4, A5, A6, B5, Letter, Legal, DL, Envelopes. You can also print multiple passport sized photos, you just have to do an extra step and that is to install an app named collage maker and try to fit any size you want in the A4 or 4X6 size etc. Print it out and then cut them later.
Maintenance is super easy.
Doing a regular head cleaning and the nozzle check will keep your printer in a good condition. Don’t worry, for that you don’t have to call any expert, it can be easily done via your smartphone or tablet and the printer will do all cleaning work on it’s own.
What makes this printer better then the Inkjet printers or the LaserJet printers is that it will cost you less money for color printing then the Inkjet printers and when compared to the LaserJet Printers it consumes 10 times less electric energy.
I won’t recommend this for office work as those professionals who want speed.
For them the laser printers would be great. So ideally this is a very good printer for home usage and for printing photos. This is a printer that perfectly ticks all the boxes for my needs. I am okay with the speed. Extra 10 seconds is not a big deal for me, as I am not any Tata or Ambani.
So if you are looking for a printer that can print your beautiful memories.
Which could do some professional printing as well, this is the printer you should go for. Click the red text below to buy it right now.
