Michael, this stuff is always welcome and, for many, will be brand new.
I regularly look at the PN tutorials and learn. I'm unaware whether there is a specific place for really useful articles like these.
Thank you for posting.

Interesting link. However, the author doesn't take into account the timing of the vibrations. That is, when, during the process, does most of the vibration occur? I've seen videos, made with high speed cameras, of several different DSLRs during the whole image capture cycle. These videos were shot from the front, looking into the camera body without a lens in place. The shutters were tripped and it appeared most of the mirror vibration was damped out by the time the shutter actually opened to create the exposure.
