    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This is a very cheap investment that can save you some headache. Works pretty well and it also looks kinda good. Everybody with a camera that has hot shoe will ask where you got it - for that same reason I ended up giving my first one away and had to bought a couple more.

    Cons: The black material that goes around the bubble level may vary quite wildly. My first one was very rigid, like a plastic, and worked flawlessly. The second one had the same material, but when connected to the camera (Canon Rebel t3i) it would simply not allow the flash to pop up - it's as if it was touching the terminals and the camera thought there was a dedicated flash attached to it. I had to cut 70% of the tabs that connect it to the sides of the hot shoe to solve that problem. The third one is of a very rubbery material, very soft. It doesn't look as good, or feel as consistent with the material of the camera body. The bubble level may also fall more easily. It still does the job and doesn't forbid the flash to work.

    Other: I recommend it, can't really go too wrong!

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Protege las conexiones del flash de manera efectiva. No se si el nivel es muy util pero es un buen añadido, mejor asi que solo una pieza de goma.

    Cons: La bolita del nivel nivel se puede salir y perderse. Por lo demas no le veo ningun inconveniente.

    Other: Util para proteger las conexiones del flash, barato y bonito. En mi anterior camara no lo utilizaba y las conexiones se deterioraron un poco, espero que con este producto esto no pase en mi nueva camara.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Useful device especially when setting up your camera on a tripod on uneven ground. Rapid confirmation that you've got your horizon reasonably straight, and helps confirm that your tripod is right in every elevation for panning situations including panorama shots. Protects hotshoe terminals so also acts as a kind of dust cover. Very easy to slide out if you need your speedlite in place.

    Cons: Not too easy to see the bubble in low light but the usefulness outweighs any downside.

    Other: There's really no downside to this - I recommend it completely for anyone who shoots with a tripod.

    posted by tengdahl on 06:31:01 G9T 03/09/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Cheap and well working level for DSLR/SLR cameras. Made of rubber/plastic and connects to flash shoe. Works well. Protects the hot. Lightweight and small size, means it is convenient to carry with camera all the time installed on the shoe.

    Cons: Quality fells a bit "cheap"

    Other: Cheap and does what it promises. Takes up much less space than a large acrylic block like many other levels I have seen. You can easily see whether the bubble is centered.

  • A great accessory

    posted by amon87 on 08:45:03 G5T 29/05/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This is a simple but a must have accessory. The main purpose is to level your camera when you are using a tripod. It fits like a glove at your external flash support.

    Cons: None! By the way, I can not imagine something wrong with this simple item.

    Other: Even if you don't need a level, I think you should consider buying this item, because it protects the connections in the external flash support.

  • Cute little bubble level

    posted by steveo on 11:06:45 G5T 23/05/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Fits into the hot shoe of a Canon T3i without any issues. Very snug fit, very unlikely to fall out.

    Cons: Very snug fit. If you need to remove it hastily you may have some issues.

    Other: Doesn't do much for my day-to-day photography needs; however, it does provide some hot shoe protection.

  • Usefull despite thight fit

    posted by pcmihnea on 12:03:07 G5T 15/05/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very useful alternative to the simple, plastic cover that comes with the camera. I don't use my Hot Shoe so often (for ex. external flash, or microphone), so I needed some utility out of that receptacle. Also, I sometimes take a picture not exactly horizontaly, so an always-on bubble level was the solution. Good build quality, covers two axes, cheaper than the others.

    Cons: As stated by many other reviewers, it is a (very) thight fit (maybe due to widen compatiblity with other DLSRs?), at least on my Nikon D5100 DSLR, and it's a bit shorter than the original plastic cap, but it does cover the electric terminals. I do not recommend it to be frequently plugged/unplugged, in fear of it tearing (it is made out of some sort of rubber - flexible material, not plastic).

    Other: If you're bored of the plastic cap on your Hot Shoe, this might be a more functional "gadget".

  • More than just for fun

    posted by tildantore on 16:00:42 G5T 08/05/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It is cheap so I bought this one mostly for fun, but after I got it I saw that it wasn't as bad as expected. I haven't tested it against a real spirit level, but when tested with the one in my camera it seems to do the job well.

    Cons: Not many cons, but it may be a bit too good of a fit into my hotshoe (Canon 60D). What I mean is that it can be a bit hard putting it on and getting it off again - it's pretty tight, but I guess that can be a good thing as well.

    Other: It was more than just for fun, since it worked pretty good, but I don't know if it will be used that much since I often use my hotshoe for other equipment.

  • Good hot shoe cover with a spirit level

    posted by tazeux on 11:58:33 G5T 05/05/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Good and useful little product that will protect your camera's hot shoe. It also looks nice, material seems to be good quiality rubber and plastic. The level is fluid filled, not leaking or anything.

    Cons: You may want to glue the level to the black part, because with a medium effort you can separate the two. Price could be lower for such a small thing.

    Other: Get it if you want to protect your hot shoe contacts, and also spirit level can come in handy not just for your camera.

  • useful and small

    posted by derekread on 13:53:10 G5T 03/05/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - tiny - can keep it on your camera at all times even when not using so not easily lost - accurate (enough for me) - useful for tripod setup (esp if you don't have one on your tripod already) - useful for hand held shots where you are not looking through the viewfinder (artsy below the waist shots or whatever) - easier to read this on top of your camera than those on a tripod - should keep your flash shoe fairly clean though it doesn't completely seal it off (the fit is not water tight)

    Cons: - cannot use this and external flash in flash mount at the same time, obviously - the bubble level is pressure fit into the black rubber, so can be removed (should not just fall out though) which might actually be a pro for some people

    Other: simple device that does exactly what you expect
