Having problems with your Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens ?

How to use the overlay function. is similar to a multiple exposure?

Answers :


These are two separate functions that give\012control in-camera that normally is only available in-computer. The Multiple\012Exposure system allows one to create a single image from up to 10 separate\012exposures, while controlling the division of exposure needed for an accurate\012final image.
\012\012The Image Overlay function allows one to\012create a composite image by combining two separate images in camera, and\012varying the opacity of the two images. The final results are saved as a stand\012alone image, and the original files are saved also. This could be used instead\012of a neutral density filter, by shooting for the dark to mid tones in one\012image, and the mid to high tones in the other, then combining the two images,\012in-camera, for one properly exposed image with much a wider light range.

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over exposed by 1 to 2 stops. If I use the same functions with my Canon 18 -55 kit lens the exposure is correct so I would presume the camera is not causing the problem. The only way I can get a correct exposure with the Sigma lens is to compensate manually for each shot. Please note the exposure p

Unless I'm mistaken, does the camera take the full 12MP when shooting in CH mode? I don't think so and that would explain why you still have 250 exposures left. ... Digital Cameras
