I don’t know about you, but I love to shoot low to the ground. My problem with that is generally I end up having to crop the photo to get my horizon level again. My camera has a built in level on the screen, but in many cases, I’m holding the camera so low that I can’t see the screen, which makes the built in level useless.
Enter the best accessory that I’ve seen in a while. It’s a rubberized Hot Shoe Protector with a Built-in Level! It fits right onto the Hot Shoe, protecting it from the elements and has a bubble level built in. The best part? It’s only $9.95.
I know what you are thinking… “What? Not ANOTHER Tripod for the most popular smartphone on the market!”
But hear me out, this is a bit different. For one thing, it’s not $40, it’s not even $20, it’s only $9.95.
Two, it’s portable and the tripod legs are honestly optional. The best part is that the iPhone mount will attach to most every tripod head that’s out there, as long it has a 1/4″ threaded mount. It’s small and very portable, and it will hold the iPhone 4 horizontally for shooting pictures, or hold it vertically for doing things like FaceTime.
