Photography Question 
David Bartkowiak

2nd Time Around

I am about to start a second year photography class and I know we are doing multiple exposures, and the cameras they provided don't have this feature. I am looking into buying a Pentax ZX-5 Kit with two zoom lenses and a case for $499, and it does multiple exposures. Do you know of any other cameras that do multiple exposures that are available for about $500?

  All one really needs is a camera that will allow you to disable the film advance. Many manual cameras do this; you can push in a button that causes the film to stay put when you cock the film advance lever.

However, for a few bucks more, you can now get a powerful camera that, in addition to automatically handling multiple exposures, will give you such features as autofocus, creative lighting options, and automatic bracketing. Most of these cameras also allow you to go all manual, if you need to for your class.

In addition to the great Pentax ZX-5 (kit with one zoom lens and case), check out these models:

Canon Elan II

Nikon N70

Minolta 800si
