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

Answer:
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.
Note:
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?

Answer:
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).

Note:
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).
