    I bought this on a whim after losing the hot shoe cover on my Olympus E-M1 after owning it for only about 3 days. I always buy several replacements and carry them in my bag, so when I saw this I thought I would give it a shot. It's rubber, not hard plastic so it fits more snugly into the hot shoe. The bubble is really handy for shooting landscapes. Most of all, it stays put, even when getting your camera in and out of the bag several times a session. An added bonus - it looks really cool.

    kinda flimsy

    the bubble level falls out of the case. I had to superglue it so it wouldn't fall out.

      I've had a spirit level on my Hasselblad since the beginning. So I got this to put in the hot-shoe on my Nikon -- works great! Then I bought a Mamiya 6 and put it in the hot-shoe on that camera -- works great! And the price is right!

        It's a bubble level. Not much else to say. Made from a hard rubber-like material and slips firmly into hot shoe. Unnoticeable when in use.

          simple and easy to use. Has to be removed to use the hotshoe for flash, but for me it is not an issue.

            This is a very cool looking and useful cover for my Pentax K-50's flash mount. The tiny piece of plastic which came with the camera was quickly lost.

              Comments about Vello Low Profile Bubble Level:

              I like the "cool" factor of this bubble. I purchased this item for two reasons: The low profile and to protect the hot-shoe on my T3i, Very good product this is. Fits very snugly on the shoe and with the profile, does not snag on clothing, camera bag etc. The BEST $ dollars I have spent for this camera!!!

              Excellent Hot Shoe cover protects all the contact points fully,and fits my Canon T5i perfectly. Easy installation and removal is quick.

              Built in level is perfect for those who have a tripod with no levels attached.

              In my opinion, a great buy.

                Comments about Vello Low Profile Bubble Level:

                I bought this to help take (level) candid shots with the camera not brought up to eye-level, just "hanging" on the strap. Works great, and I keep it in place instead of the hot-shoe cover as this design is a lot less likely to snag on things than some of the other hot-shoe bubble-levels available.

                Comments about Vello Low Profile Bubble Level:

                A great little idea to assist anyone who shoots with a tripod that has no built-in level. It is, however, a throw-a-way item and after just a few uses becomes loose and will fall off the camera. It will also take up a hot shoe on the camera, which is not much of an issue for video shooters. It is, of course, very small, hard to see and not lit. Never-the-less, it's cheep and convenient.

                    This product fits like a glove on my flash shoe. It is also very helpful with the bubble feature, which is useful for regular shots without using my flash. It is also good for keeping the shoe track clean from dust,etc. It's a valuable product that most likely fits easily on any camera. I am truly pleased with mine. You will be too!

                      I use this level on the hot shoe of my camcorder to check that I am always level especially when I handhold the camera. The level is great considering at any time I could have an external monitor and microphone and this level is great because it really adds Zero weight yet is very functional.

                          Nice gadget but not highly accurate

                          Wanted to try that for a possible gift to my workshop students.
                          It's ok but not very accurate when compared to the camera level.

                              the bubble level falls out of the case. I had to superglue it so it wouldn't fall out.

                                I keep this little level in my hot shoe when not using a speedlight, it fits securely and helps to ensure that my shots remain level, particularly when using a wide angle lens. I'll be using my Joby GorillaPod Mini-Tripod (also a cool and useful little thing) this summer, when taking wide angle landscape photos and videos in Ireland.

                                With only one bubble and the level's hot shoe positioning, it won't help with leveling vertically oriented photos, but for the price it's pretty handy.

                                  Fits well in the Canon hot shoe. Great little dual purpose item. Nice level and protects the hotshoe contacts. If your looking for that one last little accessory, here it is.
