This Two-Axis Hot Shoe Bubble Level from Vello mounts onto any standard hot shoe on a camera. It allows you to precisely align the camera on two planes, to ensure that the horizon line is absolutely straight. This is a necessary accessory for QTVR shooting sessions, for landscapes, or any other photography requiring fidelity to a horizon line or other straight-line elements.

Vello BL-HS2 Reviews
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!
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.
Replacement for the One I lost
Not perfect, but it works
Great product and value
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.
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.
