Product Highlights
  • Electronic Level Indicator
  • Adjustable LED Luminance
  • Continuous or Periodic LED Display

The Seculine AL-205 Action Level Cross is for any camera with a standard hot shoe fitting (adapter required for Sony/Minolta), showing not only horizontal level but also vertical alignment. This really cool device is well-suited for portraiture, nature, architectural, and technical photography. It also allows precision camera orientation for shooting vertically for skyscapes or downwards for applications such as flat copy work. Additionally, it has an intelligent custom setting so you can set up the device to meet your particular needs.

In the form of a cross, the device displays leveling information with 7 color LED lights for each axis. The LEDs shine progressively from deep red to light red and finally green in the center when the camera is perfectly level. There is also a handy set of lights on the back for indicating when the camera is horizontal. The LEDs have 3 levels of illumination, and a power-save mode.

          This is a pretty effective digital level, used on a steadicam for reference. works well, however I noticed a fairly short battery life- need to keep a couple of replacement batts on hand.

            Works great for archectural when shooting with wide angle lens. Mounts right on camera, easy to read. Automatically turns off if you forget to. Runs on a simple watch battery. Great little tool with lots of bling.

                I do 360° images and the bubble level on my panohead is a lot more accurate. It can be OK for some type of photography but not mine.

                  Comments about Seculine AL-205 Action Level Cross:

                  I purchased this knowing I was going to be shooting night time shots. It was wonderful not having to use a flashlight to see bubbles moving around. it was very easy to use and to see what my camera was doing while shooting at night.

                  It lived up to my expectations.

                    Comments about Seculine AL-205 Action Level Cross:

                    I bought this because I was not happy with the precision and ease-of-use of bubble levels. It was extremely well in landscape orientation, and acceptably well in portrait. Documentation leaves a great deal to be desired, so trial-and-error is part of the learning curve. The shoe mount is very tight in Nikon flash shoes, which may be why they provide a second mount. Overall, though, a very good product.

                      I'm an architectural and real estate photographer. I'm very happy with the Action Level Cross. It saves me from having to guess if my camera is level or not. It's quicker and more accurate than the green cube spirit level I used to use. Plus, it looks cool with the colored LED lights on top of my camera.
