Manfrotto 804RC2 head wobble
May 17, 2013

Hi everyone,

wondering whether anyone else had similar problems. Only really noticed this after getting a D800, which is heavier than the D90, but the extra 300g or so shouldn't make a difference and I'm sure this has been happening for a long time. Here's a video which shows a rather huge amount of wobble on my Manfrotto 804RC2:

Everything is tight on that video, the wobble simply comes from the joint between the camera plate and the quick release base. Anyone seen something similar on their kit / someone else kit?

Regards,

T.
