Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Level, part of Canon 60D Essential Training.
When you put your camera on a tripod, you are usually going to want the…camera to be leveled. To help you with that, the 60D gives you a built-in level.…I am going to press the INFO button, which gets me my info screen.…If I press it again, I get through to the level, and the level is showing me…that I'm out of black right now.…The red line and the gray line are not in the same place.…So I am just going to loosen up my tripod head here and tilt my camera, and…look--as I tilt it, the horizon moves around there.…If I can get it to where the line is green, I get level.…
It's kind of like a little video game…you can play right on your camera.…So I am going to hold it right there and lock that back down, and now my camera is leveled.…I can get out of this by just half- pressing the shutter button, and now I am…ready to shoot straight, level pictures.…
