K-5 and double exposures...

Is it true you can do double exposures on a K-5? And if it is, does anyone know if you can do it on a K-01?

This may answer your question.

"It takes 2 shots if you release shutter button veery gently, in fact with some practice you can do it with almost any camera"

I found this here

Well, at least with K-01 no one will have to worry about mirror flop...

Are we talking about a malfunction of the camera or a picture (like with dancers) where there is one image out of multiple shots in the camera? That you can do with up to 9 frames in one shot.

But if I recall correctly there is a bug associated with the double exposure function and using RAW. The white balance is somehow messed up and can be hard to correct afterwards. I guess something get undefined as the behavior is different in (for instance) lightroom and rawtherapee. This did not happen with the K10d.

Multi-exposure mode on my K20D you can select 2-9 exposures. It has to be reset for each picture, and you have to click the EV compensation on...

And you get double exposures ( or triple or quadruple or whatever your heart desires up to 9)





Just in case anyone was wondering...
