Re: D800 Virtual Horizon Question

I suspect that the hotshoe spirit level is the inaccurate one not the camera. I have had many spirit levels that are wrong

easy way to check is to place the spirit level on a flat surface (doesnt need to be level) and note the position of the bubble. Turn it around through 180 degrees and the bubble should be in exactly the same place, if it isn't then throw the level out.

even better to do it on the camera that way it will also show if the hotshots mount is off
