Pentax Q

I have a question about the multiple exposure , custom image and digital filter modes. I can't seem to access these modes through the main camera menu....especially the custom image and multiple exposure...They are greyed out. The manual says that the multiple exposure mode doesn't work with certain settings (Tv for example)....How do i fix this problem?

You probably have one of the custom image functions invoked on the front control wheel.

Green (auto) mode probably disables these. Put your camera in P instead.

Yup, any other setting has Custom Image enabled...all others including "full auto" will allow you to get multiple exposure.

I've NEVER read the manual but I just switched to Tv and Multiple exposure does work ...i'm going to have to read the manual now
