Thanks for sharing!

FWIW I like the idea of the laser pointer test I read about on Luminous Landscape. Basically, you tape a laser pointer to the camera, aim it at a wall and if you can see the dot wiggle when the shutter fires, you might want to beef up your tripod.

In my test I discovered that mounting the camera on a tripod doesn't help the vibration. I added that graphic to the post. I used a Really Right Stuff carbon-fiber tripod and their ball head.
