Why resurrect such an insane thread?

OP, you can buy another camera and continue to take crooked pictures, or learn the right way to make them better. Many people, including me, end up with slightly off horizons and whatnot. We fix them in PS.

If you constantly take pictures cantered to one side, make an effort to correct it. Its not the camera.

It may well be the camera. I've tested my 30D carefully, aligning the viewfinder grid and top/bottom, then taking a test shot of graph paper. It's tilted slightly - enough to see in some shots but not enough to bother repairing.

It's tilted 0.3 degrees and keystoned 0.25 degrees in addition to the tilt.

I should also say that I often get tilt in my handheld pictures and it's usually in the opposite direction. It's me, not the camera.

I am convinced it is the digital camera. I have been taking pictures for decades with a non-digital SLR and I have NEVER had this problem. But with my digital they come out lopsided. I have to compensate by taking the photo at a skewed angle. My camera is Canon EOS Rebel Xsi

Unfortunately, and the Wayback machine will let you see most of your online disasters even now. Saying that the resurrectionist in this case posted almost the same post, word for word in another thread, also from about 2008, but without mentioning the camera model.

Yes, I see that, but he does mention he has a Canon EOS Rebel Xsi which is very long in the tooth. I guess he joined in the first place because he's frustrated with his camera but is too inexperienced on forums to ask the right questions and provide enough information about the circumstances or provide us with examples. Or maybe he's just venting. I wonder if this is a new camera for him. In my experience I believe that tilting is usually the result of the shooter pulling down on the right side of the camera as the shutter button is depressed.

It certainly isn't the camera's fault. I am quite sure in mass production somebody didn't skew the sensor at an angle, otherwise it would have been noticed and all over the web. This user phenomenon is also why Canon introduced a level in the displays of the cameras over the past few years.
