Double/infinity exposure, image processing.

Is it possible to double/multi expose already in the buffer? To somehow turn that thing off which says that when picture 1 and picture 2 blends together it is called double exposure. Why? Because it is totally fake and hasn't anything to do with double exposure. I don't know if any more modern Canon (from 400D) has a double exposure-function, but my hasn't one. Is it hard to make one?

And also take a look at the the "image processing" - see what really is happening. Has any of this been investigated?

So... what you want to say is... if you add two numbers right now, you get the correct result, and if you add them later, you get a fake result :)

Yes, double/multiple exposure means adding (or averaging) some image buffers, usually in RGB space. Probably it works in YUV too (didn't try).

Example (averaged 1800 movie frames in RGB):

It was done with a python script, from an 1-minute movie => it's totally fake.

Hehe, that's right! ;)
What I want to know if there is some kind of interesting information just going away/being compressed when the image is going to the image processing-thing. So that those two numbers has a lot of decimals which is chopped. What if we could take that information and do something with it.

Interesting example!

If you shoot RAW, there's nothing lost.

Does Focus peaking only work with Auto-focus lenses? None of my manual, converted lenses seem to work..
