camera tilt

The angle at the perspective center between the photograph perpendicular and the plumb line, or another exterior reference direction. In aerial photography, tilt may be separated into the component angles. A tilt in the direction of the x axis is known as φ (phi) tilt, and a tilt in the direction of the y axis is known as λ (omega) tilt.
