I had that problem.

What was causing it is that one of my legs is slightly shorter than the other.
I have had custom shoes made (one shoe has a thicker sole) and now all is well.

Another solution is to use a camera like the Fuji 602 that can overlay a grid on
the LCD screen (both in the viewfinder and rear LCD) meaning it is simple to
line up a known vertical or horizontal surface with a line on the display.

Only if you want to be conventional.
