For all types of photography, from landscape to portrait, it’s important to make sure that your camera and horizon is level. There are options in the market, such as a small bubble that slides into your hot shoe, but what if you don’t have access to, forget, or don’t want to spend the money on the level? The answer is already in your kit, or more than likely your pocket – we’re talking about your smartphone!
Here’s how simple it is to use.
- First, download and install the app.
- Then, mount your phone to the top of your camera in the hot shoe using a Rock Solid LoPro Phone Mount and Rock Solid Hot Shoe Adapter.
- Finally, use the Bubble Level to ensure your level on the horizon, and the Inclinometer to check your tilt.
Best of all, the Lo Pro Phone Mount and Rock Solid Hot Shoe Adapter can be used to take behind-the-scenes video of your shoot or broadcast in real-time to Facebook or YouTube Live.
The app also pairs well with the Aero Drone LaunchPad. Place the phone on top of the drone table using the Surface Level to make sure your LaundPad table is perfectly level, ensuring a clean take off of your drone.
