How to Take a Double Exposure with a Canon Rebel 2000


The Canon Rebel 2000 is a film SLR camera. As of 2010, most users are more familiar with digital cameras than traditional film models, so there may be a steep learning curve while transitioning. This model is capable of multiple exposures, which uses the same area of film to capture two or more photographs. This technique is often used for special effects, such as doubling a person, without any digital processing.

Things You'll Need

  • Canon Rebel 2000
  • Turn on the camera and rotate the shooting dial to the manual mode, which is indicated by an M.

  • Press the "Function" button on top of the camera to point the arrow on the LCD display to the multiple exposure icon, which is the third from the top. A "1" will be displayed.

  • Rotate the click wheel until a "2" appears in place of the 1.

  • Aim the camera at the subject to compose the shot. When adjusting the settings, your exposure should be about half a normal exposure. A second exposure will double the amount of light entering the camera.

  • Press the shutter button halfway to focus, then press it fully to take the first photo.

  • Press the shutter button again to take a second photo. The camera will automatically advance the film after it is taken.
