Hi Martin and welcome to Nikonians.

Help me understand what you are experiencing. When you put your camera and lens in portrait mode and you tighten the head. Does the camera start to move in a downward position while the plate stays in one place or does the entire head start to creep downward?

From the picture of the plate, it appears to have a smooth surface without a lip to fit the underside edge of the camera. This could potentially allow the camera to creep on the plate if the camera has a nose heavy lens like the 70-300 or the 18-200 when zoomed out. Unless Vanguard makes a plate designed for your camera that works with this head you may not have a solution to this issue unless you change heads.

Joe
