As a newish tech cam user I've really enjoyed the learning process - getting the camera set up right, movements...
I've got one small challenge that's really irritating me however: Whilst I can get the camera level and upright by using the spirit levels on the camera, I sometimes struggle to get it parallel to the scene. This is particularly so with architecture, and the results are frustrating. Because I've got the camera set up level in both planes, I sort of feel like I've got a right to expect the verticals and horizontals will all line up...and sometimes they don't.
The issue seems to be the rotation of the camera about the vertical axis. Because the camera is so small compared to the scene it is very difficult to get it exactly parallel all of the time. It's just really difficult to judge. I've taken to setting up using the spirit levels and then sighting across the top of the camera at a (hopefully) horizontal line, assuming that any divergence between the top of the camera and he line is from left or right rotation of the camera. Sometimes it works...and sometimes it doesn't.
Any tips or tricks would be gratefully received.
