3D photo shooting In case you were wondering how a camera that is natively 2D can shoot 3D images, here’s how – the camera captures two shots of a scene from two different angles to create still photos that can be viewed in 3D on a compatible display. In the TG-810 there are two 3D settings: Manual and Automatic. In both settings, the camera indicates when it is time to pan. In Automatic, when the camera is panned horizontally after the first shot, it automatically takes the second shot at the ideal moment. Manual is primarily for 3D experts because the user decides when to take the second shot. April 2011 / 19
