Are you hanging your backpack from your tripod? That will help a lot
Marc

I haven't done that. Thought the tripod was heavy enough. But I think that will help too.
Will do it from now😊

In my testing mass damping with a camera bag was as effective as liveview/mirror lockup so I now use a cable release, liveview and hang my bag from the tripod for tack sharp shots

I pestered Really Right Stuff for a year and a half until they added a hook to their leveling base!

They assured me it was my requests! :)

You're probably right, I had also suggested they increase the diameter to make it easier to handle with gloves but Joe declined due to a possible lack of clearance with the legs, which is probably the case. :-)
