Vello BL-HS2 Reviews

Works well

I prefer using this level for straight horizons instead of the menu item as it is easier to use in my opinion. This bubble level is easy to read. The only complaint is that the material it is not that strong - this is the second time I replaced it due to bumping and breaking the foot off.

Level up your camera ;P

It's a level, that works really well. Line up the bubble and you're good to go!

Not accurate

I bought this and the low-profile version about two years ago. Neither agrees with the other. And this one doesn't agree with my big carpenter level. If you read the reviews (of this and many of the similar ones) you'll find that most of them are OK, but some aren't. There's really a big variation in accuracy, so when you buy one you just take your chances. The best thing to do is buy two or three and then use the one that's the best.

This bubble level was just what the user was looking for; replaced an older (carpenter's) bubble level.

Small and useful, I use it to level my mount, is very accurate and can put it in your pocket.

It works...

Nice little accessory. A bit overkill if you have a bubble level on your tripod, but heh, you can't miss it when it sits on the hot shoe.

Works as Advertised

Why spend $25 or more on a hot shoe level when you can get one for about $7? Same stuff. Only problem I had (and had for many years with different ones) is that the level does not fit the hot shoe tightly enough. The problem was easily remedied by adding a few layers of Scotch tape.

Are these Vello levels any different from the other ones? They all look 100% identical and I know a lot of companies use the same products and just sell them under their own brand.

Will this fit the Sony A7R4?
Asked by: DANIEL G
I can't imagine why it wouldn't. It just needs to slide into the hotshoe. It fits my Sony cameras no problem. Sometimes I also just drop it onto the LCD when doing and overhead shot. Generally, just super handy to have a small level you can use on the hotshoe or on the camera itself.

question

What is the liquid made of? Is it something toxic or petroleum-based?
Asked by: Anonymous
I, too, have no idea what the liquid is. I did like the responder citing spirit levels.. I bought it because my camera base covered the level on my tripod head. I like the way it works on the hot shoe....

question

Is this product waterproof?
Asked by: Anonymous
Make sure you buy the newer water tight version. First generation isnt; once water gets in, the air bubble disappears, and it no longer gives an accurate reading.

question

DOES THIS FIT THE SONY A6000 HOT SHOE?
Asked by: Anonymous
The level fits a standard size hot shoe and I believe the sony hot shoe, though referred to as a multi interfaceshoe , has the same dimensions as a std hot shoe - I think it conforms to the ISA std. The sony multi interfaceshoe just has it's connections hidden at the inner front of the shoe. I purchased this level for a Canon HV20HDV Video camera which has it's hot shoe contacts hidden, similar to your Sony and it fit just fine. Hopethis helps. Bill
