  • Any multi-exposures from E30?

    Has anybody taken any multi-exposures shots with the E30 or other models? It's something I have tried briefly, but never really made any purposeful photos.

    If you mean exposure bracketting - lots of us use that technique, probably too much. I shoot with the e-3, but I don't think the implementation has changed much across the models.

      I think Ross might mean the Multiple Exposure facility, whereby multiple (up to 4) frames of pictures can be saved as a single image. Page 51 of the manual.

      No, I've never tried this (yet!).

          If I really needed to do multi exposure (several shots on one frame), I would combine them in Photoshop (using layers and "Lighten" mode I guess) because you can always remove some or all of the shots.

          Once you have done it in the camera however, you can't go back...

          Same reason I would shoot in colour and convert to B+W in the computer rather than shoot B+W in the camera.

          Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.

            I think you can still go back & use all the RAW files (assuming you are saving JPEG & RAW). The example using the moon as part of the image is one good one, but should be against a dark sky to effectively combine the other photos. If you have taken some good shots of the moon with its placement being in various places & saved them (copied to) the XD card, they are then there to use for some interesting overlays using live view for compositional allignment. Just think, a flash exposure of a lovely nude against a dark background could be creativly used similarly. Ah, my evil mind is at work again.

            Another thing that would be good is a multi-flash function with Olympus flashes, but this can be done manually or the multple exposure feature could be used too. This following photo was done using my E520 & FL50 flash hand held, manually firing (set to manual).


            A stronger flash level could have been used here.

            I'd still like to see some creative multiple exposures done with the E30 built in feature. I believe other later model cameras include this feature too.
