7D Mirror Shake - w/70-200 f/2.8 - Advice on brace, please

I enjoy shooting works of art, many times these objects are outdoors.  Some the best shooting oppty's are in the worst wind conditions OR require a VERY solid platform for the camera and lens so there is no movement even from mirror shake when I have to bracket shots. Some exposures are long.

The 7D as I'm using it now with the 70-200's mount screwed into my tripod seems to move much more than I want. The 70-200 is a balancing act at times and wind or even Mirror shake have been factors.  It's natural I guess based on the size of the lens.

QUESTION:

Is there a brace or plate that others have used that ties a solid pieces of steel to the lens and camaera and then that is mounted on the tripod?

If anyone has experience with this, wouldyou  please let me know the brands so I can create a more solid platform?

THANK YOU,

TVSTAFF
