    haha okay so she has a nikon right and I do too and I dont understand how this is possible without actually manually doing it yourself in the menus.

    this may be a noobish question but is it even possible for the camera to layer two different pictures taken at different times without manually doing it yourself AND the this didnt happen to any of the other pictures. She never changed settings.

    Haha shes freaked cause its a cross. And im bored in study hall and id like to hear what you guys have to say. haha thanks!

    btw first time I saw this i thought long exposure but look closer.. two different pictures.

    there are some cameras that will do multiple exposures on the same file, but with nikon's that starts at a D200 level.

    If she is using that camera it is possible she has gotten herself into that menu and didn't realize it was happening.

    if not that, then perhaps it is a reflection of some kind, or a camera that needs a repair job.

    I'd like to see the exif data for this one.

    As Ann said, some Nikons can overlay 2 exposures into 1 image, my D300 can do this and produces results just like this.

    Another possibility is that it was a long exposure, and she moved the camera without realizing the shutter was still open, but a flash would have to have gone off twice to make the cross so clear. If someone else was shooting with a flash, I guess this could happen.

  6. LOL, I've had a digital SLR for over seven years (Canon D60, 5D, 1Ds Mk III) and I didn't know they could do multiple exposures... or can they? Anyone know (without me trudging off to actually rtfm) whether my camera can do this?

    They 100% can, IF... done it many times. :)
    Very easy with a Nikon camera. All the above one is, is a 2-picture, multiple exposure straight from the camera.

    That is the same effect as this, except mine is a 4 pic setup. They rotated the camera or subject 90 degrees, and I just zoomed in a bit in between frames:

    Personally, I think it's use is limited to amusing the kids, but Nikon thought it had value... lol

    I only managed to do this once with my D80. I jerked while shooting and, got what looked like a double exposure.
     
  9. Cool shot.

    I'll check it out later tomorrow. Might be fun to do while waiting at the airport.

    That's a neat application of that feature and I don't know why I didn't think of doing that. Well I can't do it anyway, it's the K20 that does it, not my lowly K10. :(

    My D90 has this feature too. Never used it tho - I thought it was just for those '70s style portraits (rim-lit profile on one side and H&S on the other with soft focus & light). I think my Grade 4 school pictures were done with this technique! LOL.

    Jerry - yours is very cool, I may have to get around to trying it!

    Thanks for the kind words, but you guys-n-gals astound me sometimes.

    A few times now, I break my backside to do what I think is an amazing shot, post it here and get luke warm responses at best. Other times, like this, I pull up what I think is a a picture that is just barely worth the space it takes up on my hard disk (and just for demonstration purposes, nothing special), and people like it.

    Know what? Some days, photography just confuses the hell out of me. :lol:
