The digital level gauge indicates whether or not the camera is level in both the horizontal and front-back directions. The Indicator turns green when the camera is leave.


To display the digital level gauge, press the DISP button repeatedly.


  • The error of the digital level gauge is larger if the camera is tilted too far forward or backward.
  • A tilt of ±1° may still be indicated even if the camera is almost level; this is normal.
  • You can use an actual level gauge to test and determine the functionality and accuracy of the camera's digital level gauge.
