I'm keeping it level
Oh yeah, a $10-including-shipping hotshoe bullseye bubble level off ebay, straight from China. Not the most technically precise thing in the world, but it'll go a long way if I shoot from the hip or in liveview. The nice rubber fit means it will not slide out accidentally, unlike the hotshoe cap that came with the camera, which has come out 3x in one month. I think this should come standard with every camera! If you're looking for an addition to your camera on the cheap, this is a good one.
I also standardized my lens caps and filter sizes with step up rings, another good cheap camera upgrade. Now I only have to deal with 58mm and 72mm filter threads, and only 72mm filters. Except the pancake lens, it would look weird, and I don't think that screw on cap will come off accidentally. But if it does, it'll get a 58mm lens cap too, besides, I need the 58mm so I can sometimes put filters on it.
I use this one - it's great. Also, ridiculously cheap (er)

If your all for portability why not just use the one on your tripod...
I level my tripod before placing the camera in it, its a bit trickier with ball-heads which is one of the reasons im thinking of going back to normal levers, but still very doable.
He wants levelling without a tripod....
We only get those huge cubes here....got a link to where you bought this one from???

I use the one jekostas linked. I like that style better because it works in portrait orientation. I still don't understand how you live w/o a tripod.
Time to hose down the camera
I could tell you but I wouldn't want you to get all pissy if it's the wrong brand
It is just something on ebay. Here.
Sometimes I have to find a rock or lamp post.
I can't live without my tripod
I'd sleep with it if it was curvier, but then it probably wouldnt be as useful.
