Spirit level

A spirit level is used to ensure the tripod head is perfectly horizontal. It's handy for architectural and landscape photography as it helps you keep verticals truly vertical and avoid a sloping horizon. It a feature that's missing from many tripods, but you can buy an accessory that slide into the camera's hot shoe or screw into the shutter release. Alternatively a small spirit level from the local hardware store would be adequate.
