Question :
An MPO file is recorded in addition to a JPEG file after shooting 3D pictures. Why?

When shooting 3D pictures, a JPEG file and an MPO file are recorded in record mode 16:9 S.a JPEG file and an MPO file
The MPO format (Multi Picture Object Format, file extension: ".MPO") is a CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) file format. This file format saves multiple images as a single image file.

In 3D picture shooting, the camera creates parallax images for the right and left eye in MPO format.
If either the MPO file or JPEG file is deleted from the computer, the images cannot be displayed in 3D.

Question :
Can I play back the 3D images, taken with 3D mode, on the LCD monitor of my camera?

No, the 3D images cannot be played back on the monitor of your camera. You can play back the images on 3D-compatible devices (e.g. TV, computer).

To play back the 3D images on a TV, connect a 3D-compatible TV to your camera using an HDMI cable (CB-HD1, 1.5 m, sold separately).
