LensCoat 3 Axis Bubble Level allows you to level a camera on 3 planes. It comes encased in a crystal clear housing with green fluid, and mounts effortlessly into the hot shoe of any standard 35mm SLR camera.
Eliminates the need to ever re-orient the level when switching from Landscape to Portrait with your camera. Using a bubble level will help to achieve a finer degree of accuracy in capturing image content.
Ideal for QTVR shooting sessions, for landscapes, or anytime a straight horizon is crucial.

I use the level on my Canon XSi Rebel camera to keep the horizons from being wonkish in my photos. It has worked well for me, although I think the level is more suited for use with a tripod or a camera with an articulating screen in the back. If and when I acquire a camera to replace my Canon XSi Rebel, I plan to use this level with it. One more thing: unlike the previous level which I had for this XSi, this level does NOT have a tendency to slip out of the hotshoe!!
Seems to work well, but fits my camera's shoe so tightly that it cracked. Had to superglue one of the little feet edges back on but so far is holding well. If it fits tightly in your camera, be very careful or you might snap one of the edges off.
I've had it for a couple of weeks and I'm happy that it's a pretty good level. If you're concerned with leveling -- I shoot house & apartment interiors -- anything less than three axes on a level is a bit pointless, even when you only check one or two at setup. Any of those three can be an issue.
The level works as advertised. The only negative is that it is sometimes difficult to get in and out of the flash shoe.
small enough to work with
Great idea in a solid package.
Never have crooked horizons this is one of the best accessories you can buy
This is a must have when you need to be precise in leveling. A must have for real estate photography!
Truly a 3-bubble level. Fits nice and tight (bit of a struggle to get it out, but I would rather it be tight than loose). I will not store the camera with it on as it might distort the hot shoe a bit. Have not yet used it in the field - this weekend. However, when I checked it against the levels on the tripod and the QR plate, none of them agreed. So, I tested it against a plumb line and it appears to be right on the money in either orientation as well as front/back. Even got it in agreement with the level on the QR plate, as there seems to be some bit of give/take while still staying level. Given some of the reviews of other similar levels that were reported to be off, I would test any of them against a plumb line to see if they are off and if so, by how much, prior to field use. Given that there are 3 levels, they sometimes get in each other's way. You can play with the directionality of the mount, but it is generally very usable and visible regardless. Overall, very impressed and looking forward to keeping my horizons perfectly level to avoid having to straighten in PS (losing some detail and definition in the process). I'll give it a 5 since I am pretty sure it will work well in the field, given that the garage tests are bang on.
