Cameras with multiple exposure capability
« on: February 23, 2020, 12:23:59 pm »

I know that Nikon and Canon have multiple exposure capability in thei upper end cameras. Can the membership tell me which models of these, or other camera makers have this capability.

I am interested in downsizing my gear but do not want to give up this feature.

If you mean exposure bracketing then I can confirm that Sony have that feature (all bodies to me knowledge).  DPR usually lists specs of any camera release (even if not reviewed) and the specs include things like that, so if you want to know about a specific body you can check there if no-one posts and answer)

Many Fujifilm cameras have it as well if I understand your question.  The cameras can do exposure bracketing.

I frequently use the Multiple Exposure feature on my Nikon D800.

(I don't think the OP is asking about Exposure Bracketing.)

I am not referring to exposure bracketing--I want to merge multiple images into one file.

Some or maybe all Olympus cameras have a multiple exposure feature in addition to conventional bracketing. They also have a ‘live composite’ feature which builds an image from multiple frames with each new frame overlaying only that which changed from the previous frame. Focus stacking is another of their multi-frame features. Oly cameras are very versatile.

The Panasonic implementation seems more sophisticated than what I get from my Nikon D800. With Panasonic you get a preview, whereas with Nikon you're shooting blind:

Ever since Photoshop and digital photography were invented, there's been very little reason to do this.

You can take multiple frames and combine them later in Photoshop. It only takes a few seconds, and gives you much more flexibility than doing it in-camera.

In-camera, if one exposure is messed up (for any reason), the whole shot is gone. Doing it in Photoshop, you can just exclude the frame that doesn't work (or the part of the frame containing the problem, e.g. someone walking into your frame during the exposure). Also, you can make multiple versions of the same scene in Photoshop, by combining (or excluding) frames in different ways, that you can't do in-camera.

The only technical reason for doing it in-camera would be file space. Storage is cheap.

Sure, but there's a buzz to doing it in-camera.

You can always do it in software unless you have a specific reason not to.

The Fuji X-T* can do that but you're limited to 2 shots and the output is a single JPG.

The new xpro3 can do 9, and you can output the individual images but you’re still limited to jpg. 

I use the multiple exposure feature quite a bit and canon has the best implementation IMHO.

The Canon 6D is probably one of the cheapest options that have this feature.
If you don't mind the limited dynamic range compared to the competition.
