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.

Re: Double Exposure The Easy Way????
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.

The camera may be set to do a multiple exposure and you must take the camera off this setting back to normal mode to remedy this. 1. Look at the top of the camera from the back - on the far left is the knob with the BKT, FLASH,
and ISO buttons. On the bottom of the outside of this knob there is a
small ring and also a small black unlabeled button to the top left of
the knob. 2. Press and hold the small button 3. Turn the ring until it shows the "S" setting
Then fire the shutter - the camera should operate as normal and advance the film after the shutter firing and also increment the frame counter. If it still does not, then your film advance motor may be bad and need to be replaced or repaired or your sensor in the back that detects the frames may be faulty.
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.
The camera shouldn't be doing this, assuming you're using 36 exposure (or 24 exposure) film. You may want to set a custom function to prevent automatic rewind -- you would have to rewind the film yourself by pressing the rewind button.
To do this:
1. Under the palm grip, press the 'CF' (custom function) button.
2. Use the main dial to select 'F1' in the LCD. It should show a '0' below the 'F1'.
3. Press the 'CF' button to change the '0' to a '1'.
4. Press the shutter button half way to save the change and exit the custom function setting mode.
If you want to stop the rewind with the film leader still exposed (film doesn't rewind entirely into the cannister), use the same steps but set custom function 'F2' to a value of '1'.
The ISO is automatically set by the DX code on your film canister - if there is no code, the camera sets ISO 100. If you load canisters yourself with, say ISO 400 film, you can adjust the exposure using the exposure compensation button at the top right side of the LCD ( " +/- " ). Using ISO 400 film set the +/- to minus 2 ( -2 ) so that it will UNDEREXPOSE 2 stops since the film is 2 stops ( 4X ) more sensitive than ISO 100 film.
Considering the age of the camera, you probably have a broken indicator gear in the top of the camera. The chances of getting it replaced aren't good. If it still works otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it. Just use 24 exposure film.
