The Low Profile Bubble Level from Vello is a bull's-eye bubble level that slides snugly into your camera's hot shoe mount. This conveniently placed bubble level helps you to align your camera for level horizontal shooting. Because it fits into your camera's hot shoe mount, it also serves to protect the shoe's electronic contacts from dust, oils, moisture and accidental impact, thus prolonging their effectiveness.

    Low Profile Bubble Level is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 79.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low Profile Bubble Level by Vello I like the cool factor of this bubble. I purchased this item for two reasons: The low profile and to protect the hot-shoe on my T3i, Very good product this is. Fits very snugly on the shoe and with the profile, does not snag on clothing, camera bag etc. The BEST $ dollars I have spent for this camera!!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY - Falls Off Camera I love the concept, but hate the design. The bubble is made of a soft rubber that doesnt snap in and lock! WONT STAY IN!! I just got it and lost it on my first shoot! Not well designed to stay on the camera. Lost it on a shoot up in the mountains. In the midst of moving my camera around and setting up for the shoot, the bubble simply slipped right out when I moved from one shooting location to the other. I didnt notice it was gone until I was setting up for the next shot -- by then it was somewhere in the weeds or 100 yards down the trail. Save your cash $$ Money and dont spend it on a part that can fall off when out on location! 100% Dont recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stays Put! I bought this on a whim after losing the hot shoe cover on my Olympus E-M1 after owning it for only about 3 days. I always buy several replacements and carry them in my bag, so when I saw this I thought I would give it a shot. It's rubber, not hard plastic so it fits more snugly into the hot shoe. The bubble is really handy for shooting landscapes. Most of all, it stays put, even when getting your camera in and out of the bag several times a session. An added bonus - it looks really cool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review of Vello Low Profile Bubble Level Looks to be perfect for my use. One reviewer complained because it was so small, apparently somehow oblivious to the fact that hot shoes are small, so anything sitting flush is going to be small. I bought it to put on my Sony A6300. When the camera is on a ball head on a tripod this is the perfect way to level it, especially for panoramic shots. Since the A6300 has a tilt screen, I prefer to have the tripod at waist level (like a Rollei or Hasselblad medium format film camera) and look down at the screen image. Thus, the bubble level is right in my line of sight. Have not yet fitted it so I can't comment on how loose or tight it fits. A got a back up just in case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from small, cheap, and clever level Clever product to level the camera for tripod or beanbag shooting. It plugs into the hot shoe so you can't use your speedlight with it. I only use it for outdoor or well-lit shooting. The base is a soft rubber that just slides into place and doesn't lock, so it might fall out as I stuff the camera into a bag, and it is small enough I might not notice if it comes off. Haven't lost it yet, and it works well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size, perfect function This is super convenient and couldn't be more perfectly positioned to be helpful. Even using this handheld (not on a tripod) by composing via viewfinder then pulling back to rotate slightly to level works perfectly. The difference in composition between handheld shots where I did and didn't use this level are astonishing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little accessory... I bought this to help take (level) candid shots with the camera not brought up to eye-level, just hanging on the strap. Works great, and I keep it in place instead of the hot-shoe cover as this design is a lot less likely to snag on things than some of the other hot-shoe bubble-levels available.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problem solved! I wanted to buy a new tripod, but the one I liked didn't have a bubble level. I called BH support and they suggested this level. It's perfect for what I need it for - a way to be sure my camera is level when I use my tripod.
