Re: Use AF points for levelling

You can use the AF points in the Viewfinder to help keep horizons level when taking your shots. Just line up your horizon with 2 of the AF points. Entry level cameras usually don't have viewfinder grids but the AF points can still be useful.

Good point. I've used that method a lot to line up with either vertical or horizontal objects in the frame when they're available.

If you're shooting on a tripod, using Liveview with the grid display can make leveling much easier.
