    tighten as per normal, not too tight, it never loosened. i'm never afraid to just hold the camera by the BG with 1 hand (with lens and flash attached somemore) lol.

    like what canonG9 said, just double check once in a while if u are worried.

    most of the time i think will still support lens and camera.

    Of cos it will still support but the stress is there, and prolonged stress leads to fatigue, then failure.
