Roll is the angle of camera rotation around it's optical axis.

If your camera is not level this can be in two directions:

  • the image is tilted up or down, resulting in a Pitch value different from 0.0
  • the image is rotated such that the horizon is not horizontal if held upright, resulting in a Roll value different from 0.0
