Even when the tilt is corrected, there may be a margin of error of ±1°.
 
If the camera is very tilted, the electronic level’s margin of error will be bigger.
With this same procedure, you can display the electronic level during Live 
View shooting and before shooting a movie (p.202, 227). Note that the 
electronic level cannot be displayed during movie shooting. (The electronic 
level will disappear when you start shooting a movie.)
