7D Level Rejection.... Appeal?

Sat Sep 05, 2009 12:58 pm

How long before someone using a new Canon 7D appeals a level rejection based on the built in level meter?

Quoting DPReview.com:
Dual Axis Electronic Level. The electronic level shows both pitch and roll angles. It can be displayed in the viewfinder using the AF point indicators or on the LCD and uses the same acceleration sensor as the 'orientation-sensitive' AF-system.

Cheers

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Hopefully never! I read somewhere it can be off by up to 1 degree.  eyepopping

My D700 already has half of that system. I never use it, far too clunky to operate (must hold down a button on the front of the camera to see it in the viewfinder).

A bit pointless IMO.

It is much easier, if the subject to photograph has a built-in grid:

...well, it got rejected for level the first time I tried to upload it, but on the second iteration it got in  Smile
