Has a low profile for the top of the camera.

Set this on a cold shoe and enjoy level shots! I appreciate how low-profile it is compared to alternatives.

Falls out of Sony hotshoes

Won't stay in the shoe of a Sony A7iv. Any pressure (from inserting or removing the camera from a bag) will dislodge it.

So simple, so useful!

Great for real state

Doing real state photography requires angles to be precise. I've been using this attached to my Sony a7iii and it's been a great tool. My only critic is regarding the built quality, it's not so great for it's price. Also it doesn't slide all the way on the camera shoe, so it's easy to lose it.

Great Check for Handheld

Great addition to the camera just for handheld leveling

Nice concept but needs work

Got it to use on a Canon 450D thay I conved to a pinhole camera. The aperture is so small nothing appears in Live View so I had no idea the camera orientation. Low profile so it should not sit there. But I found that I had to continually check it to be sure my clothing hadn't knocked it loose. I put a layer of Gaffer tape on the bottom but that wasn't enough to hold it still. Three layers finally did the trick.

Decent Bubble Level

Its ok if you have a hot shoe on your camera. Make sure you don't set it to high up on your tripod, or you'll need a chair or ladder to adjust the bubble.

Hi does it fit the sony alpha 58 Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
This will only fit on the Sony A58 with the use of an adapter, as the A58 and other Sony Alpha DSLRs use the proprietary Sony/Minolta shoe. You can find the adapter here: http://bhpho.to/1gjWYR5

Yes, the Vello Low Profile Bubble Level can be used on the Canon EOS R5 Mirrorless Camera. It can easily be slid in and out of the camera hot shoe.

question

How do you fasten it so it won't slip out?
Asked by: Anonymous
With the bubble level up, it slides right into the hot shoe mount. Mine fit rather very snugly with the rubber side slits. Just be careful when using this in the cold weather: cold contracts and it may dislodge if not treated carefully. I have been using these bubble levels for the past three years on my D300s, D610, and D810, and I have only lost one last winter. This bubble level is extraordinarily convenient when setting up on a tripod.
