No, you cant do that with digital in camera. With film you opened the shutter twice. Recording a partial image on the film each time. With digital, the sensor doesnt hold a recorded image in the way film does but rather writes it to an electronic file. So to achieve the same thing you need to make two images and merge them in post. Which is also much much easier by the way.

You can do double exposure with any camera that lets you keep the shutter open and block the lens. If the camera doesn't have manual control, I don't know how you could do it effectively.

Yes, if you set the shutter to stay open as long as it will let you. Some cameras have a "bulb" setting which allows you to keep the shutter open until you release it. Try this for fun: Open the shutter as long as it will let you. Be in a COMPLETELY dark room. Once the shutter is open, take a flashlight and turn it on and off in a few places. Then release the shutter. It's pretty cool to do. You can shine the light in your face in different spots and it looks like you are headless and floating around the room! LOL

Do it in post. Open two images in a paint program that supports layers. Set the second photo layer to semi-transparent using the blending tool. You can also blend only one portion of the photos which is a powerful way to make extra effects. There is so much control in post production it's not worth worrying about double exposures in digital.

There's really no reason to have the camera do this when it's extremely easy in post production (as long as the software has layers). Adobe Photoshop Elements, which can be had for well under 99 bucks (depending on various discounts) can easily blend two exposures in five minutes. And even better is that you determine how dominant (or equal) the each exposure is.


Thank you. bw!
