I currently have a Giotto MH1302-652 ball-head complete with quick release plate.

When I had the plate fitted to my D80, I was never completely convinced that it was secure. Is there a 'knack' to using the existing quick-release plate and/or is there a dedicated plate from someone else that will fit the Giotto ball head.

As a side issue are the quick-release plates of the main manufacturers
