D810 - Virtual Horizon in the viewfinder not illuminated
Jul 24, 2014

I just received the D810 today. I'm coming from a D700 and the virtual horizon showed up on the viewfinder LCD display making it very easy to see and use in the dark since it's always illuminated. On the D810 it's in the viewfinder screen and only turns red for a millisecond when things are in focus. It's close to impossible to see the indicators in the dark. I know i can use the large LCD on the back of the camera, but that's not the way I shoot.

Is there a way to keep the light illuminated for the virtual horizon in the viewfinder screen on while the button is pressed? Thanks in advance.
