Bubble Level for 35mm Cameras

I've been looking for something like this for a while. This is a perfect fit for my cameras and how can it be anything but accurate? The discounted price made it a no-brainer. A little quality of life upgrade.

Useless

Not one of the spirit levels in this thing is even close to square with the mounting base. Not worth it at any price.

Excellent Three-Axis Level.

The Vello Three-Axis level greatly simplified photographing and stitching large documents and photographs. Off axis distortions were minimized which prevented redo's due to skewed images. You don't think you need this, but you do.

Just okay...

No matter which side, including from the top, that you view the different bubble levels from, when the horizontal levels indicate level, the bubble is not centered in the circular level. It would be nice to have better precision than this (which is true level, horizontal, circular, or neither?). The unit will probably be accurate enough for most users.

Shoe mount too thick.

The mount part is too thick for the GH5's hot shoe. Does not fit. Oddly enough, Vello's Low Profile Bubble Level fits perfectly.

Bought this for landscape and train photography. Does what it's supposed to do.

I know that both my camera, leveling base and tripod all have bubble levels but sometimes (most times to be fair) having all the angles/levels available in one easy to read place is the way to go.

It fell off my camera shoe

By Thalia

It doesn't have anything to tighten on the shoe of the camera and so first it cracked and then I picked it up. Later I realized it had fallen off again to late for me to realize it was gone.

question

will it work in the overhead position? I have a heard time keeping my camera level on overhead shots where I can't see through the view finder.
Asked by: Anonymous
My thoughts: since it mounts on the hot shoe of your camera I don't think it will. You need to be able to see the bubbles to verify orientation and having it above your head will not allow this. Hope this helps.

question

Does anyone have any idea at what temperature the liquids in this will freeze? My guess is that it would not work shooting in subzero temperatures in the Arctic?
Asked by: Kimberly Z.
At temperatures low enough to freeze a spirit level your camera would likely be inoperable and you'd be dead.

question

can this fit to Nikon D7000 ?
Asked by: JANETTE N.
This bubble level fits all my Canon cameras fine but I am not familiar with Nikon. It should fit as I would think all hot-shoe fittings are a universal size ie 1 fits all.
