I bought this to simplify taking panoramas. I think this product is useless for that purpose, here's why:

1) It fails the classic level test for the horizontal (roll) bubble. If you put this in your hot shoe, make it level, and then pop it out and put it in the other way, the reading changes. It is bad enough that it can go from inside the lines to sticking out of the lines.

2) The pitch bubble can't even be tested, because the entire block rocks in the hot shoe. The top surface of the hot shoe foot is a bit domed (convex) because of the molding marks. If they had ensured that the top surface would be concave, so that the hot shoe touches only two points, it would at least have repeatable measurements (if not entirely accurate).

3) Even resting it on the cube faces fails the classic level test. It is common for one of the bubbles to go from touching the right/top marker and after rotating 180 degrees, it is touching the left/bottom marker. This is true for each face.

4) I would guess that the accuracy of this level is about ±1°, which is not saying much, when a common builder's level is ±0.0005°. You will get better results just by looking through the viewfinder and manually aligning a horizontal or vertical reference. If you are trying to use this to level your tripod legs for a sweeping panorama, forget it.

I find no problem whatsoever with this level. Fits the hot-shoe snugly - not too tight, not too loose. Bubbles seem very accurate - but then, how accurate do you really need?? Serves my purposes (for taking panorama shots) perfectly. Should have bought it a long time ago.

I was a little hesitant in ordering this product because of the remarks that it is extremely tight fitting. It is indeed very tight fitting, so much so that I was afraid to force it onto my Nikon hot shoe. After I got the level halfway onto the shoe I stopped fearing I was going to break my Nikon camera. For ten dollars you can give it a try, but you will probably experience the same problems that I had. I am going to try to sand down the bottom surface of the level with emery cloth and perhaps that will make it a bit easier to slide into place.

well, for $10, it serves its purpose well. it seems pretty accurate when compared to my regular level. my only reason for give it a 3 vs a 4 or 5 is that it was an extremely tight fit into my hot shoe on the D5100. maybe it just needs to get broken in and it'll fit better, but i was worried about breaking off my hot shoe while installing this little bugger.

This three bubble level with work with any camera with a hotshoe. I had to grind the base down as it would not fit into my Panasonic DMC-FZ150 camera. That task is simple enough with some sandpaper or a pencil grinder. With the three bubble levels, two of them can be used in either portrait or the landscape mode. The best part is the level will still fit into my camera bag while still mounted on the camera. The camera flash will still open with the bubble level mounted in the hotshoe. It could not be better. I am very happy with this product.

Pretty tight fit in the camera; seems to agree with the tripod bubble level. Does exactly what I need it to do. Great price

This level works OK, but is a little loose in the hot shoe. I bought this for my Canon 5D M2 and my T2i it is a little loose on both cameras. I would not buy it again.

Like for many other reviewers, I found that one of the three bubble levels was not indicating correctly -- turning it 180 degrees on the same flat surface gave a different reading. After looking at it carefully, I found that the attachment slots for the hot shoe mount were not parallel to the rest of the level, and it wasn't something that could be fixed by sanding it down, etc. Don't waste your money on this (like I did).
