How is it determining the vertical/horizontal position without the level without the gauge? Are you just talking about the gridlines?

No. When shoot vertically, the camera play back the file vertically. I think the camera still have some kind of device that can tell the camera position when shoot. No level indicator can be displayed on the LCD/EVF. I don't know if the indicator is just disabled, or camera only has a cheap vertical/horizontal position sensor which can't tell the level precisely as the one on NEX-7.

The funny thing is that, although I always use the digital spirit level with my NEX-7, I still often have to straighten images in post-processing, so I think the gauge isn't properly aligned. I find that the level in my RX100 is much more accurate.
