a new feature on my K10D or, to be more precise, I used a new feature I haven't tried before: multi-exposure
We know all the classic fountain picture with frozen water (due to high speed) of blurry water (with slow speed).
The weather wasn't nice today, so I played with a quartz Braun alarm clock
Obviously, the K10D was on a tripod and I used the IR remote control.
iso100 50.0mm (PENTAX K10D + smc PENTAX-DA* 16-50mm F2.8 ED AL [IF] SDM)
The period was set to 6 seconds and we see the seconds hand clearly 5 times and not so clearly 2 times, all with one second interval.
Now, there's another option with multi-exposure. On the K10D, select MENU > Capture parameters > Page 2/2 > Multi-exposure then select the number of takes and switch auto IL on.
f/4.0 1/20s iso400 50.0mm 4 exposures
(PENTAX K10D + smc PENTAX-DA* 16-50mm F2.8 ED AL [IF] SDM)
The multi-exposure was set to 4, so we see the seconds hand 4 times, 3 with 2 seconds interval and the last with 4 seconds interval.
The auto IL switch makes multi-exposure easy, since it provides the exposure control for all the takes.
Now, I don't now how easy is using that feature on the field
I don't know how to choose between
- pre-processing: selecting all the complicated parameters in the camera before taking the pictures on the field, or
- post-processing: taking the pictures as-it on the field then processing them on-house
