Cool D4 Feature: Viewfinder Virtual Horizon
The D4 has improved the virtual horizon function in the viewfinder to utilize the AF points.
I have recorded a video of this behavior through the viewfinder and posted it on my blog:

I love this feature. As one who is "horizon" challenged, I find the new D4 feature is much more useful than the previous method.
Also, the right scale in the viewfinder shows the front to back tilt (I guess that's yaw?).

Pitch is nose-up/nose-down. Pitch up, pitch down.
Roll is side to side. Roll left, roll right.
Yaw is rotation on a plain (think of spinning on a tabletop). Yaw is controlled by the rudder. Hmm. . . I tried to describe the difference between yaw, heading, and compensation heading with consideration to apparent angle of incidence . . . . Yaw is spinning on the tabletop.
