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. .

I had that trouble with a Hassy 500c, but not to the extent that the big Pentax caused. That was what converted me to a mostly tripod shooter. Those kinds of experiences left us well trained for using the D800E.
