D600 multiple exposure

One thing I use a lot with my D300 is the multi exposure hability. I better say used to use, because all my stuff have been stolen past week, from my car!!!

Tears way, It´s time to save money to buy a D600 at least with 50mm f:1.8, But I must know first how many multiple shots can D600 take. As I think you all Know D300 can take 10 exposures in one frame, but in the D600 manual I can't be sure if it is 3 or 10.

Can you help me? Thanks

Re: D600 multiple exposure

You are limited to three shots in one multiple exposure frame.

I don't use multiple exposure. I take more than one picture and combine them in PS. That gives me much more control. If you shoot a multiple exposure and it doesn't turn out you're stuck, whereas with separate images the possibilities are just about endless.

Agreed. PS CS6 can cover a multitude of errors - and do it better.

Confirm: D600 only does 3 exposures, but why not combine in post?

I just checked my D600 manual AND tried it, and the max is 3 exposures. I still don't understand why you would use in-camera multiple exposure vs. doing it in post. You have much more control if you blend the images in your computer. You can balance the amount each image contributes to the final exposure, you can dodge and burn different parts of both images, you can apply masking, you can shift, stretch, change blending modes, apply color filters, etc, etc.

With in-camera multiple exposures, you get one chance, and the original images are lost.
