    That seems like something that could be made fairly easily with an Arduino and an accelerometer.

    Why not mitigate vibration with a gyro instead of just detecting it?

    Or just hang a bagfull of sand or rocks from the head or center post of the tripod. You can carry an empty canvas sack and some paracord...

    Remember--unelected legislators (bureaucrats) have nothing to do all day but sip coffee and make ridiculous new laws and sop up a comfy paycheck. You've got to figure at least one or 2 of them gathered around the coffee pot are still human enough to smile privately that you might be flagrantly breaking their little law they made up. At least you're not mounting bazookas on your camera or something.

    No need to carry a bag of rocks, your camera bag is the bag of rocks.

    One of the many reasons I bracket, even at $9 a negative. It is still cheaper than returning. That is even if the shot can be recreated another day.

    Also another good reason for a big Ries wooden tripod. Supposedly wood sucks up the vibration better than the other available materials.

    I have found one of those little spirit levels with two bubbles at right angles which you attach to a flash bracket or just rest on the camera are quite sensetive and do show if there is any movement, the bubbles just flicker a bit with vibration such as mirror slap when the shutter is fired or wind movement. Cheap and simple.
