Never have a crooked horizon in your photos again with OhSoh ELi

OhSoh Eli will help you have nice and level photos every time!

| Cameras News | Posted: Dec 5, 2013 10:41 pm

If there is one thing that bothers me with almost every amateur photo taken of a landscape, product, or person, its the lack of a level horizon in the background. It is not that hard to level a shot when shooting off a tripod, but when you attached the camera to the three legged device, a lot of adjustments must be made to ensure a perfectly level photograph.

While it is quite easy to fix these crooked images in image editing programs, you lose some of the image due to cropping. Additionally, when shooting large panoramic sets, having a level imaging plane makes a lot of difference in the end result. A new Kickstarter campaign is looking to change the way we level our cameras for imaging everything. Called the OhSoh ELi -Electronic Leveling Intelligence Camera Support, this new device attaches to your camera and tripod and automatically levels every shot.

The OhSoh ELi uses sensors to automatically level your camera on both the X and Y axis and ensures that the horizon is always straight, even if your tripod is perched on an extreme angle. "ELi was designed to speed up workflow allowing you to concentrate on your photography. When you set your tripod down you only need to roughly place it and let ELi take over - with the press of a button you will be setup," reads the Kickstarter page.

 

 

With decent tripods costing hundreds of dollars and high-grade ball-head mounts costing even more, the OhSoh Eli saves users both time and money, and it appears that just $230 NZD or about $190 USD will land you one of the auto leveling devices. Note that shipping outside of New Zealand will cost extra. This is one of the first big-ticket Kickstarter campaigns that we have seen launched in New Zealand since Kickstarter made its way down under a few months back. Head over to the source link below to read more on how the device works and how you can back the project.
