Received one today - the newer type 2 that includes the pins to lock into the front of the camera. 2 things I'd like to ask of those familiar with this: It rotates in only one direction. I can't get it to rotate counter clockwise, which makes set up for a shot inconvenient. Is this normal? Also, the tab with the level on it is somewhat flexible, and looked to be slightly bent downward when I received it. I discovered it is quite easy to "adjust", which surprised me. Is this normal?
