This is a video article about a tripod plate that I got long back ago. But I struggled a lot to get the original plate as well as an alternative to it.
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.
