After some caution based on other reviews I broke down and spent a buck. After checking out on a known level surface (see my review of Swanson Tool CCL001 Cross Check Level) I noticed the bubble was a bit off-centered. I found that if you gently pushed down on the bubble insert (in the rubber housing) with it on a flat surface, it snapped into a position that checked level. Next came to getting into my Nikon D5100: It slid into the hot shoe -- kinda tight -- after taking care to get the shoe guides into the slots in the side of the rubber housing. Once in place I rechecked by putting just the camera body on the same surface, and voilà! the bubble was centered.

I had tried larger bubble cubes, but those larger levels, while more accurate, interfered with the pop up flash and my camera bag. Since I don't use a shoe flash very often, this level stays on my camera. It comes in very handy as I shoot nightscapes, often without an easy horizon reference, so this is very, very handy.

This product is a rubbery coated, internally stiff chip topped with a bubble level. As a hot shoe cover alone, it is better than the Nikon supplied product because it actually seals the hot shoe better. With the added convenience of the bubble level, it's a "must have".

I had to get a replacement because it didn't fit. But the replacement fit perfectly in my Sony A6000. When I compared the two, I've notice the first hot shoe cover slit was cut in an angle which it made it only go in half way and didn't fit (obviously defective). I've tried contacting the selling directly for a replacement but they never got back to me so I had to go through Amazon (which their customer service is 2nd to none!) I'm giving it a 3 star for their poor customer service!

As to this product, nothing special but it does what it says, covers the hot shoe from dust, dirt and etc. It fits nice and snug and you have to use little force but it does go in and out pretty easy. I think it's made out of hard rubber and not plastic making it durable, in my opinion. Having a leveler in this hot shoe cover is a nice feature and a bonus.

Just an FYI, the leveler can be pushed out, though I don't know why anyone would want to remove it but it can be.

It's a great bubble for landscapes where the horizon needs to be leveled, but if you want to use it on other planes (y or z) it renders the bubble useless. There are a few options with multiple bubbles...that allow more precision.

I gave it 4 stars because it's a bit of a pain to remove once clipped into the flash housing.

It fits perfectly well on my Canon SX50 HS and surprisingly, it doesn't interfere if I have to use the built-in pop-up flash...it works without taking it off...how convenient could that be!!! Wonderful item and such a great buy!!!

Not going to use this product and it's not worth going to the trouble of mailing it back for a refund, so that pretty much tells you its usefulness for me.

Since the bubble size is so small there's very little tolerance in getting the bubble centered which takes longer than if I just used the viewfinder to line up straight edges within the frame. It was hit or miss not getting crooked images.

Also forgot to consider that it doesn't work turning the camera vertically for shooting portraits or tall buildings. Oh well, live and learn.

An o.k product and the price was right. Ordered this with some other camera accessories as the cover for my hot shoe was missing. This cover had a metal framework the body of it is a stiff rubber with compass embedded. It was very difficult to secure into the hot shoe without considerable force. When I had to remove it to attach a strobe to the camera, the metal framework remained in the shoe and had to be picked out. I removed the metal and discarded it. Without it the compass fits snugly, but is much easier to remove and replace.

i use a flat bubble level which can sit on the hot shoe if i wanted, but i find that this is so small that i misplace it (even in my pocket among change). i'm glad that most cameras include an electronic level - but my needs are much more intense with panning and dolly time lapses and motion photography/videography, and i need everything completely level. i like the hopkins pocket surface level and use that instead.

The material is not just "rubberized", it **is** rubber. And nothing else. The entire black insert is soft ,rubbery, flexible material. It neither fits correctly in any of the hot shoes I tried nor does it accurately display level. I can approximate more accurately by hand with pure "guess-timation". Not worth the time to return so I will throw in the trash.
