Weird R3 horizon balance issue


Hey everybody. Recently had a fellow photographer go through some unedited albums I have on Lightroom and she finally addressed an issue I guess I’ve been putting out of my mind for a while. A lot of my shots are off balance on the horizontal plane. I’ve been shooting a good majority of my life and professionally for well over a decade at this point. I’ve never had this issue before.

Any ideas? Is the R3 just that heavy on one side? I was thinking maybe starting to shoot with a monopod. I know there’s that one menu option that has vertical and horizontal levels but that’s a lot of info on my screen. I’ve been cropping but getting that feedback really made me want to solve the issue on set



Funny thing. I have noticed the same strange occurrence with my 1DX. I am afraid the answer is just getting older is the culprit. I now have acknowledged the fact and take extra care shooting horizons. But you know it is an easy fix in LR or PS.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!
