And the one for the D300. It is the same idea, ultrasonic vibration of  
a filter in front of the sensor and a statement that is like the  


As for image tilt, I doubt it would be the image stabilization system  
for the following reason. Those systems are constrained to vertical  
and horizontal movement. That is the reason for sensors for panning  
motion which turn off the stabilization in one direction. Not designed  
to catch rotating motion. Conceivably if the the stabilizer  
malfunctioned it might leave the sensor high or low or to the left or  
right, but not tilted.
