Lost my electronic leveler ! Please help!

After a recent shoot, something changed on my leveler.

I used to be able to find it by pressing on the info button until it came up but now I can't get it to come up again.

I have looked at every choice in the menu and still can't find where to make it appear!

Can anyone help? I have an important shoot tomorrow


Thanks in advance

Try this…..
“Displaying the Grid and Electronic Level”
*The grid and electronic level can be displayed to help keep the camera aimed straight. The grid is displayed in the viewfinder and the electronic level is displayed on the LCD Monitor.

Step 1: Select {VF grid display}
In the menu
Step 2: Select Enable


/\ from page 47 in the manual, best of luck

Update, hey everyone, I went and did exactly that (I actually remember finding that, and yet, my leveler still won't come up when I check or uncheck the box).

Come to think of it, this all happened after connecting via my Lilliput 7" monitor.

Could that have anything to do with it?

yep, for some reason my leveler no longer displays at all
doesn't matter if I check or uncheck it.

Oddly enough, the last time I saw it was on my lilliput monitor, but no longer on the lcd screen on the back

Re: Lost my electronic leveler ! Please help!

I had this happen to me when using an external monitor. I resolved it by doing a hard reset.

Method:

Remove the main battery and the memory backup battery. Put the camera in a comfortable location with a bit of sun on its face overlooking a body of water (if possible) for the afternoon OR just sit it on the table for at least an hour.

Once its meditation treatment has completed put the batteries back in and you should have a level again.

Note - This will reset your image numbers back to 000.
