I have a Chamonix 45N-1 and have no problems or issues with tilt and rise/fall. The front standard is designed to allow tilt with the rise and fall locked down. You set the rise or fall, release the tilt locking tabs, and then set tilt. Most of us purchased our Chamonix cameras through Hugo Zhang and he's 100% reliable. I'm sure the Shen Hao is fine, but Chamonix builds their cameras to a higher standard of quality, and considering the cost is very close I think the Chamonix is the better deal.
