Great capture Walter, although it looks like most of mine, not level. While framing my shot I make sure it is level, lined up on the bottom of the viewfinder. Resulting in an image off by 1.5 to 1.7 degrees. I am not sure if it the camera or me, let alone how to fix it before taking the shot. I can fix it in PS but I would prefer it to be level when framing. I have read about several cameras having this problem. Any ideas how to overcome this dilemma?

Yeah, you caught me. I didn't even get out of my car to snap this one. Here's the adjusted version.

I actually like the first shot better. It is a bit more dramatic.

Regarding photos coming out crooked, there can be other causes besides the cameria being crooked. If you are shooting at an angle to the subject instead of straight on, you will get perspective distortion with just about any lens. If the lens is pointed above or below level, there will be perspective distortion. You can get a small acrylic bubble level that slips into the camera hot shoe to help you insure that the camera is level. It won't help when shooting at an angle.
