Do you use this virtual horizon feature?... if yes, how/when do you use it?
I do not plan to use Live View in still photography, therefore this feature is just a marketing trick for me. (I prefer to take photos like in the old film days, by looking on the viewfinder..)
What is your opinion?

Which camera are you looking at? On the D300s, D700 etc the virtual horizon shows up in the viewfinder, in place of the meter scale.
I was talking about the D7K, I guess the D300s/D700 has the same feature.
Using the Viewfinder meter scale can be confusing as well (In the D7K is possible via a function button assignment, and the catch is that when you view the meter scale, is exposure or tilt?
The virtual horizon , on a D700 at least, can also be views in the viewfinder. I use it once in a while when on tripod or to check-correct my tendency to left-tilt when hand-held.
Good point, I forgot that you can use the camera on a tripod :)
