    How much did you spend on the tripod? You pretty much get what you pay for. The good tripods have levels right on them so that you know when it's flat & level.

    If you tripod has the basic built-in 3-way plastic head. Then it probably will not be perfectly level in the standard position. I find that with my cheapo tripod, it's easier to adjust the legs than the head to get the camera level.

    This may not be a bad thing because it forces you to take your time and make sure that your camera is level and your composition is what you want it to be.
