I'm wondering if you can do a Double Exposure in camera with a 40d? I've read Joe McNally talk about higher end cameras being able to do this.

Not that i know of.

Is there a specific reason that you need it to BE in camera? You have very little control over the results, compared to doing the two shots seperately then placing them on seperate layers in PS. The latter way, you can adjust the opacity between the layers - even using different opacities for different areas.

Even if you are going to mask off half the lens and then swap over, you can get much better results doing things in PS.

My old 35mm film cameras allowed double exposures, but the results were quite hit and miss. Now with digital it is much easier and better for me to combine seperate exposures in PS.

If I wanted a double exposure, I would take separate two shots and put them together in Photoshop. It's very easy to do.

No, I have no reason to do it in camera. Thanks for all your replies.

No way in the camera I am aware of. But why do you want to do it in camera? Much easier in some editing program.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Out of curiosity: Are there any digital cameras that will do this?

Yep from what I know, a good number of Nikon's can do this.
