I use a two-bubble level usually, and I thought (wrongly, it turns out) that a three-bubble level would free me from switching my two-bubble from vertical to horizontal mounting. The three levels inside the cube partially and mutually obscure each other -- that is, they get in each other's way -- so it's hard to read. Plus the cube is rather large. I went back to using my two-bubble level.

In one word, the product is terrible. In two, it is fantastically inaccurate.
This was a waste of my money, and I am surprised that it got so many good reviews on Amazon. It is possible I got a defective piece, and the quality of manufacture has degraded over time...
Maybe you always get what you pay for.

As you can see for yourself, the bubble is so small compared to the markers, that it is impossible to get a proper level.
The 3 viles are not perpendicular to each other, and since they cross each other, they are not necessarily wasy to read.
The "dove tail" of the hotshoe is very tight indeed, and gets "filed" every time you insert it into the hotshoe, and leaves behind some plastic dust as a reminder.
The picture posted on Amazon is quite misleading, since it hides all the defects I have mentioned above.

My ratings:
- Functionality - 1/5
- Usability - 1/5
- Reliability - No data
- Performance - 1/5
- Support - Absolutely Terrible - this is from their website:

Sorry but the tri-level is not level. It also would not slide on my Pentax k-5. I got it to go on with an exacto knife and with some rasping got it to be level.
The K5 has a built in level on 2 axes but I bought this to play with and to put on my other older Pentax.
I actually checked this level on a carpenter's level.
It wasn't level. Save your money.
I ended up buying a couple bulls-eye levels to glue on my tripods.

I know: levels that mount in flash shoes can only be as accurate as the mount. That's fine, but even when I tested this level on a reasonable bench setup and compared it with known-accurate levels, it was off a bit. That disappointed me.

That said, overall I think this is about as good as this kind of device gets. Maybe some day I'll try one of the $30 units, but for the person looking to ensure that their camera is "pretty darn close to level", I think this unit is hard to beat.

I use it for many camera-leveling tasks, but usually not for setting up panoramas (for those I prefer my trusty Novoflex pano base). Using the Cowboystudio unit will very likely help you to quickly level the camera. Used in conjunction with a tripod-mounted level, it will probably get you close enough to do some very good pano shooting as well.

The reason I bought this unit--and would do so again--is that I prefer the three-axis level approach over 2-axis and bubble levels. It lets me see what's happening very easily.

When the level arrived, the shoe was too big to fit all the way into the hotshoe on my Canon 5D Mk II. It would go in about 1/3 of the way, then stick. I carefully filed it down until it would slide all the way in. . .and found that the height of the shoe was enough less than the height of the hotshoe that it wobbled. The thing is worthless to me now. You're thinking, "Yeah, well, you filed too much off!" Maybe, but I don't think so. That's not the direction in which it's too loose. Anyway, if you're face with a similar problem, be very careful. Or return it and hope for a better one.

I purchased one on the 24th of the month and 3 days later purchased another. I've used these levels extensively lately on my Nikon F4 & F6, also I tried them on my Bronica S2A which very handy with this heavy camera. Very useful when photographing tall structures and trees. I attached a small cord to connect it to the camera straps for security. Ft

I own a Pentax K-r, and unfortunately the piece of this level that attaches to my hot shoe is slightly too large. Sanding it down seemed to fix the problem, but having done that, I'm no longer 100% sure it's level.

Not something I use every day, but it is a handy little dude for setting up landscape shots when using a tripod on uneven ground. I like knowing my camera is level and not having to rotate and crop photos to make them look level. Probably not a big deal to some, but it gives me peace of mind and lets me concentrate on what is in the viewfinder.
