The Best Cameras for Multiple Exposures Without Photoshop

Multiple exposures aren’t as difficult as you’d think. I just believe technology has made us lazy as photographers; we try to do everything in Photoshop instead of within the camera. However, our cameras are very capable of doing all of these things themselves. So we’re running down a list of some of the best cameras to do multiple exposures with in-camera.
