This probably is a ridiculous question but...............I read somewhere that an overlap option was availableon a digital camera. Is this anything like double exposure? Does anything like this exist in a digital?

Could a double exposure affect only be achievedthru software?

Thanx in advance.

The only overlap option I know of is so you can line up images when shooting a panorama.

Yep.

You can combine multiple exposures taken at different settings to create high dynamicrange photos:

Combining multiple frames/exposures to get more light is called as stacking, it can be also used for synthesizing long exposures.

gofish-

The last cameras I recall that actually had a double exposure feature that was shown in the documentationwas the Pentax P-500/P-550 twins. You often see them be offered on e-bay.
