I would like to find out if there is a way to quickly access the "Virtual Horizon" feature that appears in the LCD screen as the camera inside the compass like dial, not the one which shows in the "Control Panel" or viewfinder.
So far the only way I can seem to bring this up in the LCD is to go into the "Setup" menu and scroll up or down until I find the "Virtual Horizon".
Someone else had suggested assigning the AE-L/AF-L button to bring this up but it actually seems only to be able to display a different view, the one inside the viewfinder and Control Panel.

Yes, I've set it up using the "Fn" key but that only works on the Virtual Horizon that shows up in the Control Panel or within the viewfinder. It does not work with the one that shows up as the camera in the dial that can be seen in the LCD. It's the LCD version of the Virtual Horizon that I would like to access without digging into the Menu each time.

It's in the "Setup Menu" under "Virtual Horizon". I've gone ahead and just added it to "My Menu" which seems to be the easiest way to access this. I've been shooting a lot of panoramic images lately and this feature comes in very handy.
