I'm using a panoramic head and a nodal slide for taking one row panoramas. However there is a knob to adjust the tension of the rotation mechanism and it is quite low so it always interferes with my mounting plate. For some angles I don't even have a chance to loosen it because the knob sits just too low. I managed to cut the knob so it can rotate a little bit more. This helps only a little bit. I think this head is made for smaller mounting plates. (See my image below)
I was in store and looked at all those alternatives. They all have this kind of tension knob sitting pretty low. Did you encounter the same problem? Or do you know an easy fix or an alternative?
As you can see the knob on the right touches the mounting plate. Sometimes this gets stuck while rotating because of the knob and sometimes I'm not able to tension it. That is really annoying.
