  • The tilt indicator setting is also available in the Setup menu > [Level Setting]. In the Setup menu, the [Level (Tilt) Calibration] setting is available too. This option allows the camera remember the current front-back direction as base.
  • When Volume Settings is set to [Off] in the Setup menu, a beep does not sound even if the level sound function is set.


  • The tilt indicator will not work when the camera is upsidedown, movies are being recorded, or in the interval shooting.
