I can never get the horizon level - I just correct it when I edit the photos

Another advantage of my Lumix cameras - a tilt sensor is built into the display (viewfinder and screen), and can be switched on and off as required. Mine's always switched on!

Getting a horizon level is hard. I have to correct some in post production anyways.

If you started out with film, one of the unnerving things about digital photography used in auto is that the camera will adjust the exposure time to suit the light and it won't tell you that it is doing that. And the photo will turn out blurry because you haven't held the camera still enough. It took me awhile to figure that out.

You should be able to see exposure details and other settings in the viewfinder if you adjust your display preferences accordingly

I started out with digital video tape c 1985 and with a digital still camera in 2000. If that was available then, I didn't know it or, more likely, didn't understand it. I confess I still don't pay that much attention to it except to see if the battery has a sufficient charge.

In my original 35 mm film camera, I had a little exposure meter on the top which I could set for the film speed, and then I set the f stop and focused manually. I was thrilled when I got a 35 mm film camera for work (c 1987) which was point and shoot - I didn't have to set the exposure, and I could get prints and slides from the same negative. (We had prints for our case files but we had to have slides for presentations.) My boss said I took more photos than a wedding photographer.

as for the horizon being level - I am often taking photos from some kind of vehicle (car, boat, plane, train). And I am sometimes in too much of a hurry to worry about whether the camera is level. Or else, I have to contort myself at some weird angle to get the item I want in the photo.
