Hi all,

I am using the bogen/manfrotto 808rc4 head. On arecent trip to the Smoky Mountains, I was having trouble with the head staying tight in about 50 degree weather or less.

It would not tighten up all the way to stay in place. It did not "drift" while sitting, but would move out of position easily while making adjustments to the camera.

As soon as the temperature warmed up, it worked fine, so I'm pretty sure the metal did not like the cool weather.

Has anyone else had this type of problem, and is there a fix for it???
