Re: How to measure tripod shake? (windy beach with long exposures)

That's a great tripod it will keep you happy for a very long time.

One suggestion.  Since you are shooting on a beach, take along one of those screw in dog run thingees and a heavy bungee cord.  Screw into the sand and then connect the tripod hook and screw with the bungee cord.  I've known nothing better for shutting down the wind or ringing vibrations from shutter slap.  In the mountains a bag filled with rocks does the same.
