C, but that is most of the time. It would have been nice if they would have built them into the Pro 2. Seems pretty common sense.

D.

I use it every time I'm out in the field. I got one of those Desmond DLEVX‑68 Leveler W Bubble Level for my tripod, so I just dial it up at each location. It's pretty useful, especially on stairs.

E -
1. When I make the first scan in a room
2. Often when on carpet
3. Always on stairs

I recently shot a large space with concrete floors and metal framework. After I used the level, I was able to use the camera itself to compare to the metal framework. Most of the time, it looked "right on" level. if I was in doubt, I re-checked the level. No scans failed to align between checks.

In a home, I check fairly often, but not every time on a wood floor.

@DouglasMeyers
How can you be sure the level is actually "level" when using Velcro?

I use my iphone on top of the camera - more exact than the bubble on my leveller

yep. Just go to the compass on your iPhone, swipe left and have a number of level options. It has been really useful as the bubble on my leveller is not as exact.

Only when I think I need to. The camera is built to be tolerant of not being level so what difference does it make?
