    Vixen Optics 35511 reviews

    Polarie Polar Meter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a very useful accessory for Vixen Polarie This was easy to use. I checked the altitude scale against an inclinometer referencing the hot shoe mount and it was within 3 degrees after eyeballing the scale so made a small adjustment. You can't just place it on a flat surface as there is a 2mm protrusion which would cause a slope error. My recommendation is to have the bubble dead center of the guide circle and have patience as the liquid filled compass moves slowly. Just like taking a picture things take time to do it right. Now I mentioned compass - remember that a compass points to magnetic north not true north. This unit does not have magnetic declination offset so you need to keep that in mind. The manual references magnetic declination in Japan which is very different from that in North America. In Phoenix I would have the line over approximately 350 degrees not aligned with magnetic north line on the floating compass. This is very useful when the North Star is obscured by landscape or partial clouds (clouds happen at the most inopportune times). If you use this out in the field at night bring a illuminated magnifier in your pocket (the marks are in degrees on the 1 1/2 compass circle). I gave it 4 stars due to coarse altitude markings and lack of adjustable magnetic declination offset.
