Digital Double Exposure?

Thomas Lavin , Aug 31, 2005; 08:33 p.m.

I've never seen this topic addressed, and I don't know of a digital camera that can make a double exposure. I'm just curious as to why not. I can only surmise that noise could be a problem with a bad exposure (and a good double exposure is just two bad exposures sandwiched together). It just seems to me that a digital camera can do nearly everything you can imagine - except that............Tom

None will do double exposures. It wouldn't be technically impossible, but nor would it have much point. Any decent image editor can combine two pictures with far more flexibility.

Quite easy to do in Photoshop, and you control everything.

What would be the point? You can easily create a double exposure in an image editing program such as Photoshop or Gimp.

using the right settings and multiple flashs you can create a "digital double exposure", but it is not like film.

does this count?, this was done in a dark room with two flashes.


double exposure?

I understand this can be done in Photoshop - I've done it many times. However, there's a completely different mind set in doing it in Photoshop than doing it in the field. The experimental and unknown output that is fun to do with film it not an option with Photoshop. I was more curious about the technical reasons why is isn't or can't be done..........Tom

Well, technically still one exposure... But PS has all but eliminated the 'need' for double exposures.

Neat idea, Tim.

It cant be done in the tradional sense because, there is no way to work on the same film exposure in a digital camera, other than the example I gave above. Photoshop was only used to adjust the curves in that photo. The multiple images of the subject were done in the same exposure. 15 seconds a darkroom and a flash.
