Multiple Exposure: Overlay Mode

When shooting multiple exposures, choose an overlay mode according to the situation and your creative intent.

  • Add: Overlay exposures without modification.
  • Average: Overall brightness is optimized by adjusting gain according to the number of exposures.
  • Lighten: The camera compares the pixels in each exposure and chooses only the brightest.
  • Darken: The camera compares the pixels in each exposure and chooses only the darkest. Choose this option if your subject contrasts strongly with the background.
