    LE-60 Leveling Base is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great leveling base This leveling base adjusts smoothly, tightens firmly and holds my Nikon D610 and heavy Tamron 150-600 with no trouble. I normally use my Nikon 24-120 for panoramics, and the bubble level on this base made things so easy when trying to level the tripod.The base moves around enough that I can have my tripod in some pretty crazy positions and still get it leveled by adjusting this base.I have a Gitzo tripod, but couldn't see spending the money it took to buy a Gitzo or Really Right Stuff leveling base. Another big plus is that this base is small enough that it doesn't increase the height of my system too much. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Made Sturdy on the Level I purchased this device to help me capture a series of images to create a panoramic scene with all images being anle to be aligned on the same plane. I believe this will do the job. I haven't used it in the field yet, but in testing it out, the camera locked into a level position without any shift as i secured the camera (tightened the camera) in place, and panned across a scene outside my house.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! A FANTASTIC addition to help me transition from photo to video. I bought this for my Manfrotto 058b, and then got a second one for my backup tripod. The movement is very smooth, and it holds a ton of weight: at the moment I've got it holding a Kessler quick release plate, an Edelkrone slider with two motorized attachments, a Manfrotto head, and a DSLR & lens in a cage. Really terrific.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I have a Sirui tripod (S-2205-N) and ball head (k-20x) that I use with my D800E. I find that adding a Wimberley Sidekick turns this into the perfect combination for landscape photography. The ball head and the sidekick give two axes of rotation making it easy to set up a shot. All that is missing is the ability to easily level the system to my horizons level. Adding this leveling base solves this perfectly. Inserting the LE-60 between the tripod and the ball head, I now rarely need to adjust the length of the legs on the tripod to level the camera. I extend the legs to the height I need, level the base and the horizon is perfectly horizontal. I rotate the ball head to point in the right direction and use the tilt on the Sidekick and the picture is frames as I like. There is only one knob on the LE-60. Once you loosen it, the motion of the base is well damped, making the adjustment easy even with the weight of the camera and lens above it. the locking is secure and easy, even with cold fingers. I do have to be sure to rotate the camera to make it easy to see the bubble level, but once centered, you've got it. Very easy to use and easy to see when it is level. I double check with the horizon in the D800e and it is always spot on. I am now confident that when I level the bubble, I've nailed it. A recent outing with this combo made it very clear that this is the way to set up for landscape and architecture shots. All simple, direct, and clear. I really recommend this product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product except for the knob to tighten the base. The Sirui Le-60 leveling base is everything I expected except for the tightening the base once it is in position. I have to really bear down on the short lever to get the base locked. I would have to say that I am having to use way to much pressure to achieve the desired lock. I wonder how long it will last before it breaks and then what?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highend finish I selected the LE-60 over other options for two reasons, primarily because I do not believe the unit will suffer from contamination ingress at the joint, if you see other designs that could be an issue. I also like the Sirui brand that produces high end finished products. This leveler is no exception with precise engineering. I find the clamping secure albeit if you hang on a gimbal head you can override it, but that is far exceeding load limits. It's a good product if a little expensive.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Leveling base is good, but... it appears to have been returned and sold as new. Small scratches on top and bottom as well as fingerprints and grime. It cleaned up OK or I would have returned it. This is the second time in the past several months that I've received an item from B & H that was obviously returned and sold as new. B&H, not cool. If it happens again, I'll close my account.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Product If you're looking for a leveling base that is very well made, and easy to use, this is the one. I use it with a Nodal Ninja panoramic head, which very difficult to level using the tripod legs. Using this leveling base makes the task extremely quick and easy.
