I turned on my tilt meters on my d800e a few months back. I don't see the meters when I turn on my camera, but after shooting, the tilt meters come on. If I turn it off and back on, no tilt meter. I check 10-15 after turning the camera on and I see it in the view finders.

Am I accidentally turning it on? I like the meters in the view finder because it helps me frame the pictures and reduce the number of edits I need to straighten pictures when I'm on, for example, a mountain and taking of the horizon.


You can set the viewfinder horizon toggle to the preview or function buttons in the custom settings controls menu.
