Quick Tip For Nikon Live View Users

Last week while shooting some cityscape photos I was leveling out my camera using the built-in level when a friend noticed and mentioned how cool it was.  You see, I shoot with the Nikon Df and he uses the Nikon D810 .  The menus are very similar so I quickly mentioned that he too has this hidden gem in his camera waiting to level the dickens out of whatever needed leveling.

Simply put your camera into Live View and hit the “info” button to cycle through the different screen overlays.  There are grids, lines of camera information, and a level on many Nikon cameras.
