Default Both camera and tripod level for Panaroma

I noticed how much more of the image I can keep if I keep both the camera and the tripod level during my panaroma picture.

Only the camera level

Both the camera and tripod level

Actually, you don't need to keep the camera level. The requirements are normally that you rotate the camera about a vertical axis with the entrance pupil of the lens positioned on that axis, and keep the camera pointed up or down at a constant angle. If you keep the camera level, the horizon will divide the panorama into two equal parts in every panorama, which is not very imaginative. Tilt the camera up to include more sky when that's the main attraction. Any decent modern stitcher will cope with a tilted camera, but some older ones may not.
