### camb vs cmbfast output

Hi,
I'm trying to modify CAMB and
I'm a little bit confused about the variables used in camb respect, for
example, to cmbfast.

In particular:
CMBFAST uses \eta, \dot{\eta}, \dot{h} and \alpha=\dot{h}+6\dot{\eta}

and write the Einstein equations for these quantities (eq. 21a-21b-21d in notation of Ma-Bertschinger)

CAMB uses: etak=k\eta, Z=\dot{h}/2k and \sigma=(0.5*\dot{h}+3\dot{\eta})/k
and write the Einstein equations for these quantities,

but these are 3 variables and
I think I should consider another one and write the relative
Einstein equation: in other words, I can't find an equation for
the shear (corresponding to eq.21d in Ma-Bertshinger).
Could you help me?
