    OP, Sim Lim, 6th floor. It fits to all hotshoes, nothing brand-specific.

    three axis is only needed when you are shooting in portrait orientation, however some hotshoe mount two axis spirit level have two male hotshoe, so you can rotate it when your camera is on portrait orientation.

    Been meaning to look for one. But how much are those? Seems to be quite over-priced locally.

    I actually use the grid lines in live view after composing. Serves well..

    Else I use the AF points in the view finder when not in LV mode. Pretty good as well.

    i think i would be so distracted by the leveling! esp the led lit ones, "oh no its not green! arggh! its red!" hahahh
    there are grid lines in the viewfinder, and i find those are good enough when shooting handheld
