stability vs resonation

Aren't stability and vibration damping are two entirely different properties.

I know a tripod can be very sturdy at withstanding wind, but still resonate badly with mirror slap.

I have no idea if your tripod resonates or of the d800's level of slap. Maybe try a bean bag or something similar as a tripod, to isolate variables.

BTW, great post, thx!
