Re: it is purely vertical blur so it is most likely just shutter shock.

And if 1/8s anti-shock delay doesn't cure it completely then one can try 1/4s. But that would make the camera really sluggish.

In the circumstances I had in mind, the shock is caused primarily by the first curtain and no amount of anti-shock delay cures it completely. 1/8th is wholly adequate to allow vibration induced by the initial closure of the shutter to die away, at least in all the hand held cameras I measured with an accelerometer. In my experience anti-shock helps but is not always enough to remove all traces of shutter-induced blur.
