What is the 3D Sweep Panorama function?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

The 3D Sweep Panorama function enables you to create three-dimensional panoramic images. We have enhanced the traditional Sweep Panorama function and developed a new technology that enables shooting 3D images with a single-lens digital camera. When you use this function, the camera calculates binocular parallax and generates two images at the same time from the standard panoramic images: one is for the right eye, the other is for the left eye. The 3D panoramic images taken in this way can be viewed with a 3D-compatible Bravia® TV connected to the camera using an HDMI® cable.

IMPORTANT: Some camera models require a firmware update to enable the 3D Sweep Panorama feature. Downloads are posted on your model support page.
