  • An excellent accessory for panoramas

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    - Built very solidly. It's a solid chunk of clear plastic.
    - Two different levels, to level the camera on both axes easily. Not a cheap "bull's eye level".
    - Supports two orientations in the hotshoe

    Cons:

    - Blocks my camera's built-in flash from raising in the landscape orientation (as expected).

    - In portrait orientation, the top level isn't useful at all unless you're trying to photograph straight down or straight up, but the portrait orientation is useful if you can't look at the top of the camera to make sure it's level.

    - The bubble in the bottom/back level is bigger than the one in the front, making it harder to judge how centred it is.

    OtherThoughts:

    This is an excellent accessory for making sure that your camera is level when taking panoramas. I've found that the levels on my tripod aren't very stable or accurate, but these are extreme useful.

    Bottomline:

    Get one if you like taking panoramas.
