It's the type a conundrum many of us have faced, after trying to make do with many a cheaper product, I've realized that cheaper does actually work out more expensive.. Did you try the tripod with your camera before you purchased? if you purchased online, you may well be able to return & get refund.. L

Unfortunately, too late to return. Hoping for a fix.

I'm not familiar with your tripod so cannot be specific but I think the first step is to see which parts move that allows the camera to shift. If the movement is with a badly fitted screw thread a simple fix may be to wrap the screw threads with a few turns of the Teflon tape that plumbers use to make leak proof pipe fittings.

Good luck.
