With any of these methods a flat level surface is essential.
Or the cast shadow will not be at the correct angle I think.

I also like the plumb bob idea. I have one tied under an old dumpy level which would be perfect . Surprising how accurate a plumb bob , a level and a long length of string can be.

Most laser measures have a projected circle of 3mm and their length is too short although they can mount on levelled camera mount.
