Double Exposure The Easy Way????

I can set my camera on multiple exposure but I was wondering how to set it up to take 2 exposure per each frame of film and then have it automatically advance without having to switch settings in oreder to advance to the next frame. There is a way to do this after you set it on the mulitiple exsposure within the display pannel. Please help... it's for photo schooling!! Thanx to anyone who can answer this.

Not all cameras can do this. The Nikon N8008, for example, allows you to specify the number of exposures for each frame. The N80, on the other hand, doesn't. You have to cancel the Multiple Exposure mode to advance to the next frame, then set M-E again.

Sometimes, when I take a picture with my 40d the automatic shutter speeds that display can fluctuate dramatically from 100th of a second to 10th of second in just a split second before I press the shutter,...


your camera is probably set to SPOT exposure instead of AVERAGE exposure,. Which means, your camera is taking readings from a smaller area within the frame instead of using the whole frame to decide exposure. When in spot exposure you can move a hair and the exposure will change dramatically. does this make sense? put your camera back into average metering.

Continuous shot 3 frames per second is not


There are several possibilities.

If you're using the flash, the flash isn't going to charge that fast.

If your shutter speed is slower than a third of a second, you're obviously not going to get three frames per second.

If the camera is set on AF-C and the subject is moving, the camera may be having trouble tracking it.

If you're shooting RAW and have a slow memory card, the buffer will fill up quickly and slow you down. Try it with JPEG and see if it makes any difference.

If you have the exposure delay mode (custom setting #31) turn on, the camera will wait about 0.4 seconds before shooting, and this applies even in continuous mode.

Check all of the above. Set the camera to Manual exposure mode. Turn off the autofocus. Set the image quality to JPEG Basic. Set the camera to Continuous 3 fps. Now, press and hold down the shutter release button for five seconds. Does the camera take about fifteen pictures?

If you've checked all of these and it still won't do it, post an additional comment here and we can go from there.

Can't roll film for double exposure.


After taking the first shot, hold down the Multi-Exposure button while cocking the film-advance lever. This cocks the shutter without winding the film. You can continue to do this for as many exposures as you want. Just don't hold down the M-E button while cocking after the last exposure.

The Multi-Exposure button is the button on the front of the camera just below the shutter release button.

Can D40X do double exposure on a single frame


The D40x does not have this facility.

All you can do is to combine two exposures in your processing software; it's best controlled by combining two or more RAW images.

How do you take double exposure shots with this camera?


That camera was never designed to take double exposures. You could shoot the whole roll with your first exposure, then carefully and exactly load it again and shoot the second exposure, but everything must line up exactly to even using the same starting sprocket hole to line things up. Not really easy or cost effective, but it can work if you are careful.

How do you take a double picture


In much the same way as with any other 35mm SLR:-

1. Turn the rewind crank gently to take up any slack in the film.

2. Take your first photo. The 3800N has a special lens mask to help this process by blanking out one half or one quarter of the image, on other cameras a thin card mask over the lens achieves the same effect.

3. Hold the camera so that your thumb or finger is firmly on top of the rewind knob to stop it turning, whilst doing this press the rewind button on the base of the camera and then operate the film advance lever. By holding the rewind knob and pressing the rewind button, you allow the shutter to c0ck without advancing the film.

4. Turn the lens mask to cover the portion of the image which was just exposed.

5. Press the shutter using the same exposure value (EV) as previously used. Usually you'll use the same shutter speed and aperture, but by varying them and maintaining the same EV you can get some interesting effects.

6. If you're exposing more than two exposures on one frame then repeat as often as required.

7. Note that this is and always has been a bodge: the film frame often moves slightly between exposures except on a few specific SLRs which had a special multiple exposure setting. The V3800N is advertised as a multi exposure model but has no specific control for it, just the plastic lens mask.

Forget how to take double pictures.


Hey xplaur,
To take a multiexposure photograph you should first expose the film, and then push the multiexposure button which is on the front of the camera on the top left when you are looking at the front of the camera. After you press this button advance the winding lever to set the shutter, and since the multiexposure button was pressed this shouldn't wind the film to the next frame. Now take your second exposure, and if you want to make another exposure on the same frame repeat the process. Keep in mind that every time you expose a single frame after the initial exposure you will be doubling the exposure on the frame. I usually under expose each exposure by one third on a double exposed frame. If you do more than two exposures I would underexpose each exposure by even more. Multi exposures are fun but tricky, and I would suggest you experiment and have fun with it. I will also say that black and white film is much more controllable and forgiving when it comes to this than color film. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
