Re: On Tripods, levelling and panoramas - how many spirit levels do you need?

2 Buy an inexpensive circular bubble level to attach to your camera or panorama head, and simply adjust the tripod leg lengths to get things level. Disadvantage is that adjusting the tripod leg lengths is not very convenient compared to adjusting a leveling base.

3 Most modern digital camera have built in levels that can display roll and tilt, so that can do the job that the circular bubble level can do. Disadvantage is that adjusting the tripod leg lengths is not very convenient compared to adjusting a leveling base.

This is where I get confused, all these options are essentially part of the head/camera.  It still doesn't mean the base is level right?

I think I have it figured out but I'm scouring the inter webs for a more in depth look into levelling with some examples to really help nail it but can't find one
