Since I started out as a large format shooter, my strategy has always been to use a tripod and a level to begin with. My 4x5 cameras always had levels built into them. My first Nikon DSLR bodies did not, so I carried a torpedo in my back pocket. (A pain in the ass.) Fortunately my last two Nikons (D7100, D800E) have built in electronic levels. So with that, I'm back to where I started 18 years ago!
