All axis control for camera leveling - Intro 2020 have announced the new Seculine Action Level Cross and Remote Slave Unit.
Intro 2020 have announced the new Action Level Cross from Seculine. If your camera has a standard hot shoe fitting (adapter required for Sony/Minolta) then this gadget will help with both horizontal and vertical alignment. There are 7 LED lights in each axis which show level information which use a traffic light sequence to indicate when the camera is level. There is also a set of lights on the back to show when the camera is horizontal. If you want to use your camera overhead or at a low angle there is a remote unit available which will show the information from your camera via a cable. The Seculine Action Level Cross will be available at the end of October with an RRP of £54.99 and £34.99 for the Remote Slave unit.
The new Action Level Cross from Seculine is a compact digital leveling device for any camera with a standard hot shoe fitting (adapter required for Sony/Minolta), showing not only horizontal level but also vertical alignment. This neat new device will work in standard Landscape mode as well as giving level information for portrait photography and when shooting directly vertically for skyscapes or downwards for applications such as flat copy work.
The Action level Cross offers leveling information in the form of a cross over the horizontal and vertical fields with 7 Colour LED lights for each axis showing level information in a traffic light sequence going from Red to Green in the centre when the camera is level. There is also a handy third set of lights showing information for horizontal level when behind the camera.
When photographing in portrait mode or doing vertical style photography such as flat copy work, the Action level Cross will automatically sense its position and provide directional information to level your camera. Adjustments can also be made for both brightness and sensitivity and there is a calibration facility to custom set the unit for your particular application. For those looking to use their camera in low angle or overhead, there is also a remote unit available which will show the relayed information via a cable from the unit on your camera.
