On some cameras you can take a pair of images by shifting a single camera and view in playback mode in stereo.
Although intended for showing the registration-accuracy of the pair you can view as monochrome or colour anaglyph with red/cyan glasses.
This is obviously more effective on larger screens.
You could also use this feature to quickly demonstrate the concept of stereo imaging to interested individuals.
You may also view the centre of the images side-by-side.
Twin Camera position (Left or Right)
Camera orientation (Vertical or Horizontal)

Lower limit is 1mm.
Image-width divided by this number is the maximum deviation that you will accept for eventual stereo-viewing.
Lower limit is '10', default is 25.
Camera separation times this factor is how far away nearest subject should be.
Lower limit is '15'.
'30' for general use, as small as '15' for close-ups.
To make manual setting of distance quicker on cameras that do not have a zoom lever, choose from 1,10,100,1000 or 10000mm steps.

Save XML file
Save shooting data, including some not displayed on screen, as an XML file.
'XML' is displayed on the screen.
A sample style sheet is provided to display the image and associated data.
Save XML with JPG
If the XML files are saved with the JPG images and the file 'stereo_data.xsl' is also located in the same folder as the images, by double-clicking the XML file while the card is still in the reader your image will be displayed together with all of the stereo data.
Otherwise, the files are saved in folder 'DCIM/SDM'.
