Thanks, Mark. Yes, I did slide the plate all the way forward with the camera and battery but I'm starting to think that my camera (HVX200) just isn't heavy enough for this tripod. The max load is listed as 33 pounds here but no minimum load is given:

I tried putting a heavy (20-25lb) toolbox on top of the head and it actually did seem to balance correctly and stay where it's pointed with that much weight.

I haven't heard of any type of interchangeable springs before. That would be great if they have them for this model. But I've had a hard time getting any information at all about this thing.
