      Highly visible bubble easy to see and use, with all the stuff I have hanging off my SLR it is often hard to see the bubble level on my ball head, this bubble level makes a level head a snap.
      My only complaint is that it needed a bit of judicious work with a small file to make it fit my hot shoe when in the portrait or vertiical mode, a few minutes work and all was perfect.

        Works well unless you are using a wide angle lens & you want more sky or more forground (tipping up or down).

            I use this with a DSLR on a copy stand to keep the camera parallel to the easel. It fits right into the flash shoe and is perfect for this simple task. The Sunpak would also be fine for landscapes, panoramas, etc where the camera is mostly used in one orientation.

              Comments about Sunpak Bulls-Eye Bubble Level:

              The level works well, but the fit was not good out of the box on my cameras' hot shoes. I took some sandpaper and removed some of the base platics to make a proper fit. The sanding on a flat table surface only took me 5 minutes to do , so not a big deal. Now that it fits on my cameras, I find it works well. I also have a level that is a two axis unit. I like the smaller size of this Sunpak level.

                I use this in my camera's hot shoe when shooting panoramas. It works well in both landscape and portrait mode and I find a bubble level faster and easier to use than a spirit level with 3 levels in different orientations. It is small, lightweight and unobtrusive on my camera.

                  Very easy to use. I only worry about the plastic base breaking at som point. I wish there was a second bubble for portrait, but it's not hard to remove and rotate this level.

                    It was a bit hard to slide it into the hotshoe but worked after a minute worth of filing. It was the only one i saw that could be slid into the hot shoe on 2 -axis, so i had gotten one. not a great item but does what is expected of it - No regrets

                      CON: Since I cannot trust it, I can't depend upon it in the field, so there's no point in having it in the bag at all.

                      My experience:

                      While putting it on my Canon SX-1 for the first time, the bubble's shoe half came off.

                      There are 4 little metal screws into plastic, 4 per shoe. 3 of the 8 screw holes, 2 on the normal, 1 on the side, are stripped.

                      At first mounting attempt, 2 of the screws came out.

                      Save your money - buy something else.

                            Love it. Can be used in my hotshoe in both landscape and portrait orientation. Also, could be screwed directly onto a tripod to level for a point and shoot (without a hotshoe) or a video camera. Great price and versatility. Would have given it 5 stars, but in portrait orientation it's tough to insert (a little too thick) into my hotshoe. Shouldn't be a problem with continued use.
