Easy cheap addition, sometimes useful – Resin Hot Shoe Bubble Spirit Level for DSLR/SLR Cameras Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Very cheap. Easily slides into the camera shoe. Shows horizontal position over 2 axes correctly. Is encased in piece of ruber, so seems pretty sturdy. Does not block the pop-up flash.
Cons:
Bubble is quite tiny and is mounted on the camera shoe, so obviously it can not be viewed when using the viewfinder. Can be a useful addition when using live view mode.
Other:
Because the hotshoe is mounted on the top of the camera and this buble does not stick out, you need to watch from above the camera in order to see the level.
Bottomline:
Cheap addition to your camera. Works great for its price. It's flat size makes that is is not in the way, but also requires you to look at the top of the camera to see the level.
