    i think you should consider getting a ball head instead of a pan tilt, and when buying a tripod it makes more sense to spend more money and get a tripod that will last you for years then something cheaper than your gonna end up buying again.
    i had this same problem a few months back and i landed on a SLIK 714CF2. and a SBH280 ball head. it's amazing never had any problems with it, so all good things for SLIK

    ahh you beat me to it

    I heard that Ball Head's tripod is difficult to control for panorama shot.. Is that right? Since i would like to shot landscape a lot...
