    In response to "Gimball Roll" to which I tried to reply twice but was asked to login again twice...

    Here is a photo and video (below) of a tilted camera. On this occasion, the camera reset itself upon restart two minutes later.

    QUESTION: Can anyone confirm that a similar tilt was resolved on their machine by performing an advanced IMU calibration?

    On the video, the tilt starts at the 21 second mark.

    This is my second camera. On the first, I manually leveled the camera (several times) by taking the back cover off, used pliers, etc.

    I did not attempt an advanced calibration with the first camera.

    Again, can anyone confirm that a similar tilt was resolved on their machine by performing an advanced IMU calibration?

    Sure do the calibration but I don't think that's the issue.

    The camera looks like it's sliding around on it's shaft. See my reply to this thread :

    Yep that needs an advanced IMU calibration. I have seen a handful of them do it. As long as it starts out level and the shaft aint spinning you need the advanced calibration.
