    EZ-Leveler-II is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from On the Level ...Really I bought the EZ Leveler II in order to shoot level panoramas with my new Nodal Ninja M1L panorama head. It works as advertised. I attach the EZ Leveler II to my sturdy Manfroto tripod. To the EZ I attach the M1L. Using the M1l's bubble level I make adjustments to my tripod's ball head. Then I fine tune the level with the EZ until the bubble is centered. That's all there is to it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perferct for precise leveling Well crafted and easy to handle, this is just what I needed for leveling my camera shooting interiors. I use a tilt shift lens for a lot of my shooting and this is much more precise and quicker getting to level than a 3 way or ball head. Using the head to adjust was always a fidgity trial and error, then re-adjust. When you are on location and the client is watching, it looks like you don't know what you are doing. That's the worst impression you can give them. Now, I get close with the head and it's a quick adjust of the knobs to level. The knobs feel substantial to my hands and can be adjusted in large or small incremental turns. They dial smoothly and don't bind. Attaching to the tripod and head is straightforward and easy. Solid, sturdy connections and no sloppiness. Highly recommended!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent leveler, affordably priced I am Google Photographer and I work for a Google Agency that specializes in virtual tours. This leveler is used for the panos (panoramic 360 images). It is a workhorse and a part that is vital to creating the panoramic images.Everything is excellent, the build quality is top notch. We've had a few other copies of this leveler for a few years and the only thing is that the adjustment knobs started to squeak a bit during adjusting, but a little wd-40 on the threads and the leveler was as good as new.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Design glitches that could be improved. This is a great device for what it was built. 1. Inner screw knob position does not allow to firmly tighten (hard to reach) it leaving leveler prone to movements. So I tighten the leveler in position completely and do not use this inner screw at all. 2. Lack of built-in bubble level forces user to use some sort of level attached on a moving parts on top of this leveler. This pretty much guarantees imperfect horizontal alignment of moving parts as you do panning. This design defect however is the problem with many tripod fixtures - manufacturer attaches bubble on the moving part instead of lower foundation causing these issues. 3. Smaller locking knobs do provide a bit of support but they wont lock larger knobs against accidental rotation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautifully crafted I photograph architecture. Leveling is important to me.I get close to straight with my ball head and now I can fine tune my leveling with the EZ-Leveler

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient and easy to use I got this to replace a ball head that I was using to do panoramic shots. I use it in conjunction with a Nodal Ninja R10. I like that it has such a low profile and allows me to make the fine tune adjustments I need to get the camera level. I put a Manfrotto RC2 quick release adapter on so I can quickly transition from panos to POIs using the same tripod.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Leveler I love this Leveler. I purchased it to use specifically with my Manfrotto MLV500AV Fluid Head which I use on a flat base tripod. The EZ-Leveler-II makes leveling compositions very easy with great precision. The double knob locking mechanism is very easy to use and makes any adjustment rock solid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and useful I use this leveler as light weight option to level a NEX-6. It works fine and is just what I needed for cylinfric panorama pics. I already owned a light Novoflex rotator: the combo is what I need for my backpack. I din't tried larger DSLR eith this combo.

    question

    How do you know when the tripod base is level if used, for example, with a Manfrotto 303SPH QTVR Spherical Panoramic Head (which doesn't have it's own level)? Would you put a bubble level from a hardware store on the horizontal rail of the panoramic head? A two way bubble that fits on the hot shoe (e.g., by Novoflex) would help some, however, the camera could be level in one spot but not when rotated, if the base isn't level--which is the point of trying to level the tripod, right?
    Asked by: Brian
    Brian, that is a really good question and it was the same concern I had. I really wish that the EZ-Leveler had a built in level. My solution is to use a small bubble level similar to Manfrotto R519.38 Bubble Level. Except for the lack of a level the EZ-Leveler is great. I hope this helps.
