    Considering the Nikon grids don't level themselves, they don't replace a level. The grids are good for aligning a shot with a relative horizon, but not an absolute horizon.

    I don't have a shoe-mount level, but I do reference the level on my tripod when I use it. And I have a Nikon with grids.

    i guess u had to be there. i found it funny that everyone was carrying all that gear. the guys were at least doing long exposures on the falls. the women were just clicking though. no idea why they needed a tripod on a bright day

    I've never used grids on any of my cameras. Eyeballing the horizon is not very hard.

    Because, even with the most advanced IS lens out there, image shake can still occur when you're 90 yrs old and your hands shake harder than Micheal J. Fox on ephedrine.

    Photography is a good hobby for old folks, it gives them peace. Just ask jcolman. :wavey:
