Wasn't quite sure how to title this...Noticed it yesterday.  Have verified it over two different logitech mouse (G503, G403).  When I slide my mouse left to right (and vice versa) on the X axis, it slowly rotates the camera on the Y axis downward.  Have changed dpi settings, polling rate, different sensitivities, different STs for different games.  I thought it was something wonky with using the Destiny ST for The Division 2.  But tried it in BF4 and same thing.

Any ideas?

It's likely stick drift on your controller. Try to recentre it.

I think the stick deadzones may be adjustable in XIM Manager, but I'm not 100% if that applies to the authentication controller.

Its a controller that has barely been used.

Only way I can think of testing it is loading up a game and seeing if the aimpoint changes after a period of time.

Definitely symptomatic of stick drift, the XIM doesn't provide phantom input. Give the controller right stick a flick next time you notice it.

Is the mouse centered on it's Y axis? If it's tilted enough then horizontal movement can produce vertical movement. If you're on PC now place your mouse down slightly tilted to the left then move the mouse in a horizontal line to see how this can happen.
