Verdict

Phottix Triple Axis Level
Phottix Triple Axis Level

The Phottix Triple Axis Level is a small square block that sits on top of your camera's flash hot-shoe and gives an extremely precise analogue level for portrait or landscape shots, with the additional 3rd axis enabling the camera to be level when on a tripod without risking pointing the camera up or down. The bubble in the middle shows movement where a camera's built in electronic level may not move allowing you to be more accurate than the built in sensor, it also updates instantly and smoothly while an electronic level may not. The edges are quite sharp and the construction is extremely solid with a very solid mount ensuring that the level wont slip out of the camera, however on one camera (out of many) it would not fit as the flash hot-shoe was too tight for it - on every subsequent camera we tested it was fine. Available from £16.95 it is a little expensive, but definitely worth while if you want to avoid wonky horizons.
