Nikon is to announce a 3D firmware update for the D800 and D4 in the coming days - a first for a Pro camera!!! A Canadian Nikon rep visiting the Lozeau camera store in Montréal, Quebec, the city's largest Nikon dealer, revealed this fabulous news to an enthusiast crowd that had gathered for an in-store demo of the recently released camera's many new features.

The 3D effect, seen in movies like "Avatar" and "Clash of the Titans", will NOT be viewable on the rear of the D800 and D4's LCD, but will be another variant available of the HDMI output, selectable from the menu.

Apparently, Nikon owners will only see the 3D output on direct playback to some currently available high end 3D monitors, available from Panasonic, Sony and Sharp to name a few.

The Nikon rep was sketchy on the exact release date or further details.

As the FIRST pro camera to introduce this new feature, this sounds like it will be another significant advance for Nikon, putting it that much further ahead of Canon! What a go Nikon!

I've ordered the D800, so I can't wait to play with this new feature!!!

Keep your eye on this Nikon USA website for coming details:
