    Can't you use the in-camera level?

    Don't know about PMH, but if you're using Windows/Microsoft Office, there's a leveling feature in there, I use it often.

    The PMH stuff is pretty limited. If you want something more full-featured without spending money, there is a Sony-only 'express' version of Capture One you can download for free. You can upgrade to a Sony-only full version for $50. If you enable them when you install, the paid features are locked after 30 days, but you get to keep using the limited version indefinitely for free and it is updateable same as the paid version. If you want to go all out, they give you a whole $30 off the full version for all cameras they support ($269 versus $299, I was being a little sarcastic there).

    There is straightening alongside a feature list you'd expect in a retail photo editing package. I use it myself - the unlocked Sony-only version - and like the default rendering of RAWs, but that is a personal preference of course. The interface is a bit more intimidating than Lightroom at first, but is extremely customizable and non-modal, and offers some simplified workspaces you can use if preferred. The library management is improved recently, but LR has a definite advantage there.

    Anyway, doesn't cost anything to give it a try.

    Faststone Image Viewer 5.5 includes a straightening tool which works well. Also free download.

    Ah, ok... a cheap option is just to use a spirit/bubble level in the hot shoe. did that for years with film cameras:)
