I've got a bad habit of using my D80 with battery pack (MB D80) mounted when using a tripod. I say bad habit as I get the feeling this is counter productive, as the extra height and single mounting screw seems to compromise the stability of the setup. what is the general opinion on this should I really take the pack off when using a tripod or am I thinking to much.

Using a Giottos MT8261CF with Giottos MH 3300 ball head.

Any thoughts on this would great
