comment Are certain type of tripod heads safer than others? Does the price makes a difference?
Interestingly at this particularly time, I did look at camera plate with flash light and it was properly secured and I always tight the screw. May be I forgot to screw it tighter this because I was more concerned at that time that the camera is in its right place. I am now researching this type of head, and how it can fail.

The tripod that I saw the other day has this time of head 'RC4' but the frame itself was china made and not that sturdy. My revilli is otherwise very sturdy. It does have the Arca-Swiss type mechanism. While it does 'click in its place', you have to apply friction to hold the camera. From your answer, looks like the friction perhaps failed since I was using a bigger lens. I will have to investigate in it more.

+1 for a lot of good info. My camera slipped from the head. The tripod itself was sturdy. This tripod looks pretty sturdy.heavy to me.

Actually the one I looked at today is also cheap (it is made in china) but at least the head is different. I have lost confidence in my tripod and thinking of going for different head which might be more secure. The one I look at today has clip (not slide in) to lock the camera.

comment Does long exposure cause hot pixels in photos?
I had the exact same problem with Nikon D5100. I thought I found a red giant?
