Dead hand technique is only available to zombies. However, for us living mortals, it refers to laying the hand (weight) on the camera body while on a tripod. This "dead" weight dampened the mirror vibrations. Don't laugh, it worked!

Man this takes me back! The Pentax 6x7 (now called Pentax 67) was notorious for mirror slap vibrations. Usually worst between 1 second and 1/15 second. MU and then wait! Some of us used a few techniques to dampen the vibrations. I put a lead pellet shooting bag (used in bench-rest shooting) on the camera. Others used the "dead hand" technique. .
