    Can you take double exposures with the Minolta Maxxum 7D?

    I looked through the manual and online, but can;t find any reference
    to it.

    If the camera doesn't do it, can it be done in photoshop?

    One way would be, in a darkened setting, dark background, to shoot bulb
    with the RC cable (locked open) and flash exposure (incident metered).
    While setting up between two shots, the viewfinder will be dark however,
    making it quite difficult to frame and focus.

    Not easy.

    The PShop route will be easier.

    I don't know if other digitals can to proper mutiple exposures.


     

    Yes. Use of a dark background in shots still helps, put your images in
    layers and then adjust as needed.

    Tht's a shame. I was looking forward to some experimenting.
    Oh well, I guess it's time I learned something about Photoshop
    anyways.

    Why not? Just another position on the "film transport" control dial.

    Last time I double exposed was about 3 or years ago...

    No, by why, I mean "what for", not "how".
     

    Quite.
