5.0 out of 5 stars The Hot, Hot Shoe
Great little widget that does exactly what it says it should. I've got a big plastic cube type spirit level that I use fairly frequently, but it's a bit bulky to have on board the camera all the time. This little device is a perfect fit for the camera though, and now has permanent residence in my hot-shoe. An ingenious device, and very useful.

2.0 out of 5 stars A great idea just poorly executed!
I, like some of the other reviewers, found that this kept falling off especially when taking the camera in and out of the bag. As a result I have now lost mine. I think this would work better if the used the same base material as the original shoe cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Designed, 23 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 2 In 1 Hot Shoe Hotshoe Cover With Bubble Spirit Level for Canon 100D,1200D,1100D 700D 650D 600D,70D 60D 50D,7D 6D,Nikon D90,D7100 D7000,D5300 D5200 D5100,D33900 D3200,D3100,D800 Olympus Pentax Fuji Panasonic Cameras & DSLR/SLR (Electronics)
I bought this for a Canon G10, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it doesn't trip the "flash detect" microswitch hidden in the hotshoe. This means you can leave it fitted without losing the ability to use the built in flash.

The top is curved and at the sides it's 1mm above the top of the hotshoe, rising to 3mm above it in the centre. It makes my camera a little taller, but not enough to prevent it from fitting into its case.

This isn't clear from the product photo, but the black part surrounding the bubble level is actually rubber rather than plastic. When you slide it into place it grips the shoe and stays put. It's not likely to fall out, but it's tiny so remember to put it somewhere safe if you do remove it to fit an external flash!

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 in 1 hotsheo cover, 25 July 2012

This review is from: 2 In 1 Hot Shoe Hotshoe Cover With Bubble Spirit Level for Canon 100D,1200D,1100D 700D 650D 600D,70D 60D 50D,7D 6D,Nikon D90,D7100 D7000,D5300 D5200 D5100,D33900 D3200,D3100,D800 Olympus Pentax Fuji Panasonic Cameras & DSLR/SLR (Electronics)
Over the years I've spent 'loadsa money' on my Nikons, and enjoyed using them.

I've just spent six quid on this little gadget and think it's one of the best buys I've ever made. Within minutes it was on my D7000 and I knew straight away it was a cracker. Not only does it protect the hotshoe contacts it also acts as a bubble level. As I do a lot of landscape / architecture it will be extremely useful. No more having to use the built in level, or the somewhat bulkier 'square' levels. This 2in1 cover will now live on my camera, with the old plastic cover stashed in my bag, just in case.

The Nikon cover, BS-1 costs about £6, the same price as this 2in1 cover, perhaps Nikon should consider something like this as standard. Give us something useful for a change.

I'm so pleased with the 2in1 cover I have now ordered a second for my D70...yes it fits that as well.

Superb little product.
Fits nice and snug in the hotshoe and isn't bulky like some of the others on offer here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does trip the flash detection on a D60, 12 Nov 2011

This review is from: 2 In 1 Hot Shoe Hotshoe Cover With Bubble Spirit Level for Canon 100D,1200D,1100D 700D 650D 600D,70D 60D 50D,7D 6D,Nikon D90,D7100 D7000,D5300 D5200 D5100,D33900 D3200,D3100,D800 Olympus Pentax Fuji Panasonic Cameras & DSLR/SLR (Electronics)
Having read the reviews previously published, I bought this to use on my Canon D60. It does cover the hotshoe fitting very well. It does grip well and will protect the fitting (which is what I wanted it for). As for how useful the spirit level is - I'm used to using the camera's built in spirit level but I will try it next time I am using a tripod as it seems to do a decent job.

The one caution I would add (and hence 4 out 5 stars) - my D60 does think it has a flashgun attached when this unit is attached and so will not let me trigger the camera's flash. I mention this as it seems it doesn't make other cameras think there is a flashgun mounted (see other reviews).

5.0 out of 5 stars "Does exactly what it says on the tin", 16 Aug 2014
This review is from: 2 In 1 Hot Shoe Hotshoe Cover With Bubble Spirit Level for Canon 100D,1200D,1100D 700D 650D 600D,70D 60D 50D,7D 6D,Nikon D90,D7100 D7000,D5300 D5200 D5100,D33900 D3200,D3100,D800 Olympus Pentax Fuji Panasonic Cameras & DSLR/SLR (Electronics)
Not sure why all the criticisms of this item. Pretty good levelling accuracy, actually, when compared with large builders spirit level. its possible to deform the rubber to make it less so, but why would one want to do that? It fits and protects flash hotshoe contacts snugly. Doesn't fall out unless you keep bashing or dragging the top of your camera. I don't do that kind of thing. Value for money: 6 stars.
Suppliers: BV-electronics - quick and efficient. Thanks.

A simple practical idea that makes good use of a hot-shoe cover. As well as protecting your hot-shoe you also get a spirit-level to keep your camera level. It can slide on one of two ways around, take a little look beforehand to make sure you slide it on the correct way round, since that gives better protection for the hot-shoe.
