p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 5DIII Viewfinder Gridlines Tilted


Got a new 5DIII today and immediately noticed the gridlines in the viewfinder are slightly tilted. I did some quick tests using the built-in level and an external level and confirmed the tilt. Anybody else have this problem? -Jason

Probably an alignment issue. Go to store an ask for a new camera.

Did you take a photo with the grid lines aligned to the horizon? Maybe the internal level and bubble level are off, too, but there's no way to know unless you test it out.

Both Nikon and Canon bodies that have the Virtual Horizon Feature, Gridlines and similar features are not 100% accurate. Every test i have been reading shows that. Many manuals also say they can be something like 1 % or 1 degree wrong.
