It really should be rated as a 0 star. Wide markings that really make it useless. Bad unfinished connector it is hard to attach and remove from the hot shoe. Avoid this company read my review for release cable it has been dumped. The level is on it's way to a land fill and will be replaced with a real unit.

I purchased this three months ago and one of the three chambers already lost most of its fluid, rendering it useless along that axis. I'd avoid this manufacturer's product.

I bough this for D700. It is nice in theory, however, the holes they drilled inside of the cube, to hold the fluid, are not level! The horizontal one has a slight downward angle to it. When I level my camera according to this level, it isn't level. Garbage. Spend a little more and get the one from manfrotto.

The level is inserted into the hotshoe. Once attached, the camera can be made level regardless if the tripod is.

This level is beneficial over others because it has levels along three planes, so it will show whether the camera is level when the camera is in landscape or when angled to portrait.

I purchased two of these and both came in fine condition. For any photographer who wants a cheap tool to ensuring your camera is level, this is a good product.

I had a bear of a time putting this on my hot shoe, then once it was on I figured I would see how easy it would be to take it off. Again, total nightmare getting it off. So that was that -- put it back in the box and returned to Amazon. The previous spirit level I used, also from this company, slides on and off like you would expect so I'll be going back to that model. It was the 2-way level.

the item barely fits into the hot shoe. you really have to push to get it half-way in. then it is usable. filing it down yourself might defeat the purpose.

Without using more force than I care to put on my camera this would not fit in the hot shoe. It required me to take some very fine emery paper to take off enough plastic for it to fit without excessive force. Even though I sanded it using a flat sheet of metal there's the possibility that the bottom face of the cube is no longer true to the other sides which negates the purpose. This wasn't an expensive item but as with most Chinese imports don't expect precision or workmanship.

REVISED REVIEW: Within a couple of weeks these started leaking and became useless. 3-way spirit levels for cameras may all look the same, but I sure hope other manufacturers make them better than the ones I bought!

ORIGINAL REVIEW FOR ITEM TYPE, REFERENCE:
I call these my philosophy cubes, and I give 'em to kids of all ages (as long as they are not so young that the cube is a choking hazard.)

Curious kids love to measure things, usually informally. This charming little device reminds us, when applied flush against any flat surface, that very few planes or faces in reality are *perfectly* level/square. Every horizontal-looking surface is canted or biased at least slightly in one or, more likely, two directions, some rather severely. Try the cap on the post on the bannister of almost any residential stair case. It's a great way to fascinate kids about their spatial environment with unintimidating geometry.

Don't even start me on post-modernism and ubiquitous bias!

As for photogs, these can be useful, as others have written, especially when photographing buildings or horizons. But if critical for professional photography or engineering or architecture, you probably would wanna spend more money for a much better calibrated and carefully manufactured device.

But for a few bucks, this a great tool. And a great toy that can charm and fascinate curious kids.
