Magnus 3D I see that you got a bad copy with the off center sensor, hence the tower in your photo is leaning to the left, either send it back or shave a 1/4 inch of the sole off your right shoe. :)

Wow this lack of noise is seriously making me rethink my decision to get this camera.. I don't think I can handle such sharp pictures..

I used to have that problem. But I think that shaving some off a shoe is kinda dumb really...what if you own more than one pair of shoes? Or alternately wear them on different feet? Or use your camera at the beach when you are barefoot? (Maybe that's why we see so many crooked horizons in sea-side snaps!)

No, best idea is to have the leg shortened surgically...a simple one-off operation that works no matter what shoes you are wearing. Worked for me!

Are you serious! BAD IDEA! I like to hold my camera out in front of me and take photos of myself. If 1 leg was shorter than the other the photos would all be crooked in the other direction. You need to consider other's shooting style before making suggestions like that!

Damn...I never thought of that! It's lucky you pointed it out otherwise there would be dozens of people out there taking wonky self portraits! :D

Of course, the obvious answer for those who persistently take pics with the horizon tilted the same way is to go live on the side of a hill...

it must be the filter on the front of your lens, is it a noise filter?

I'm so sorry! The super crisp images are just so grimy. Return it immediately, or you can send it on my way ;)?
