    I thought I heard that red has sensors that would be able to tell whether the camera is level or not. Is there a setting that could bring up that kind of gauge to use as a quick reference of camera level like there is on some Arri and Sony cameras?

    I believe touching the histogram to shortcut your monitor tools gives you the option to turn the horizon on.

    You'll need to place your camera on a level surface (or a bubbled head) and calibrate the gyro sensors first, though. Under the same calibrate menu for blackshading your sensor.

    Was able to calibrate and turn it on. Thanks! One issue is that it also reads the tilt level as well as the z axis level which makes it harder to use without scrutiny. Usually I could just look and see if the line is green and know i’m Level where with the tilt also calculated I don’t have a green line even if i’m level as long as I don’t have the camera tilt level as well.
