Im taking lots of landscape pics and while using the "display" yellow cross hairs, im finding ot difficult to get a level Horizon on some pics.

Is there a tried and tested way to get a level horizon?

If you're meaning these framing help lines, camera itself doesn't have anything better and you just have to frame more carefully.

And actually if you try to follow rule of thirds you should place horizon to one of those horizontal lines

I think that is usually from moving the camera when you push the shutter button. I know that as I have been doing it for years! I did download a free editing program that allowed horizon changes by degrees, but I can't remember what it was called. Maybe someone else can jog my memory ?
