camera setting question

I have somehow gotten an image on the live view screen of a circle which looks like an image to maybe help with leveling the camera. My question is how do I remove this image as Find it distracting. The camera is a Nikon D7500.

If you touch your shutter button, the leveling screen should go away.

Go into the setup menu (the little wrench) and look for “virtual horizon” and turn it off.

On my Nikon & Sony it is just changing Screen View using the rocker button, no need to go into Settings.

Stardust please do me a favor. Pick up your Nikon. (I assume it’s a D7500 because that’s what OP was asking about). On your Nikon, turn on the virtual horizon then try to change it using the rocker button. Please post the results here.

Thank you.

I was going to say search the D7500 User Manual for 'level', but that proved to be a waste of time. Look instead for 'horizon' and you'll likely find the solution faster than hoping for useful guesses from the UHH community.

My suggestion to

Go into the setup menu (the little wrench) and look for “virtual horizon” and turn it off.

Was a useless guess?

On a Nikon D810, I push the info button on the bottom of the rear of the camera when in Live View. Try this multiple times & it will toggle through several display options & then off. Not the same camera but might work. Check out virtual horizon in your D7500 user's manual. It is amazing what is in there!
