If you use a long lens AND the tripod mount on the base of the camera, the weight will cause the ballhead to slip a fraction after tightening up. It does stop after a couple of mm.

    Slips Out Of Position

21 February 2015

I have had this head for about 4 years and have found it to be very secure.<br /><br />The one downside is that with a long lens (EF 70-200 f/2.8 ii and 2x extender) there is a little bit of 'drift' when you let go of the camera after tightning the clamp.
