About taking photos and recording video
When shooting 3D photos or videos, both outer cameras will capture images–one for the left eye and one for the right eye. When
the two images are combined and displayed on the 3D Screen, they appear as a 3D image. See page 22 for more information about
3D images.

Tips on creating 3D photos and videos
When creating photos or videos, it’s best to be at least 12 inches away from your subject. If you take a photo or video of
something too close, it may turn out blurry, similar to when you try to look at something too close to your face.
Taking photos or videos
of objects less than 12”
(30cm) away may result in
blurry or double images.
For best results, your
subject should be more
than 12” (30cm) away.
The ideal range for your
subject for the best 3D
photos is about 39” (1m)
away from the camera
Background objects in the
distance can produce a
better 3D eect.
