Rotating camera when put in vertical position, how to cope?
When I turn the camera sideways to take a portrait, the screw between camera
and tripod rotates a bit if I am in a 10-sec exposure. The center of gravity is too
far from the tripod mount. Tighten the screw, turning the right, all in vain though
the tripod head was stable. What can I do now?

or maybe a better ballhead?

Or a Manfrotto 030ARCH HEX Plate,
If you find all these gadgets are too expansive, can consider weld your camera to the tripod head, this will solve the problem permanently.
