Multiple Exposure Photography The T90 can also let you explore sophisticated photographic effects. Like multiple exposures can be achieved with just a single operation. Just press the Shooting Mode Selector and Metering Mode Selector at the same time, check to make sure that the ME mark appears on the Display Panel, then choose the number of exposures to be included on the same frame by using the Electronic Input Dial.

Correct exposure of the subject can be ensured by using the AE Lock. When you intend to take rapid sequential shots with the T90's Motor Drive, up to 9 multiple exposures is possible within a single frame.
Users' tip: If you choose a motor driven five exposures per frame mode, the background will be exposed five times more than each of the separate images. Therefore, you have to select the background carefully in order to prevent it from being overexposed.

Remaining Frames Display

The number of frames are displayed below the LCD display in the viewfinder, so it can be checked while shooting. The number of frames remaining is shown as "F" until 9 frames is reached. At which point it begins the count down. Non DX coded film is shown only as "F".
PLEASE USE the MAIN MAP for the viewfinder and LCD display for cross reference in this site.

Eyepiece Shutter Lever This lever is used to open and close the Eyepiece Shutter. Closing the Eyepiece Shutter prevents ambient light from entering the camera when you are doing self-timer photography.

Remote Control Photography

Remote control Socket: This is the connecting terminal for accessories such as the wireless controller Or the remote switch (60T3). The LC-2 remote control device uses infrared rays to control the T90 from up to 5 meters (16 ft.) away. Particularly useful for wildlife photography or news coverage, the Wireless Controller LC-2 consists of a transmitter and a receiver. You can also use it instead of the self timer when you want to be in the picture.

An Auto Sensing Mode Using Infrared Light

The Wireless Controller LC-2 has three operating modes: the Standard Mode, the 2 sec. Delay Mode and the Auto Sensing Mode. The Auto Sensing Mode trips the shutter when an object blocks the light path between the transmitter and the receiver. It makes possible unmanned wildlife photography.

Spot Metering Display

When shooting with the one spot metering mode, both the shutter speed and the aperture setting are displayed at the bottom of the viewfinder. The fixed dot will then appear at the position of the triangle index on the right of the viewfinder.

Film Winding Mode Open the Palm Wing and set the Film Winding Mode Self Timer Selector to "S-C". Press and release the Film Winding Mode Button to set the desired film winding mode on the Display Panel.

Manual Film Rewind If you want to rewind the film before the end of the roll, open the Palm Wing and press the Manual Rewind Button. The T90 starts to rewind the film from any point.

Self timer Open the Palm Wing and set the Film Winding Mode / Self Timer Selector to Timer Icon. Press and release the Self Timer Button to set either 2 or 10 sec. on the Display Panel. Press the Shutter Button when you are ready to take the picture.

Battery Check Open the Palm Wing on the side of the camera and press the Battery Check Button. Battery voltage is then shown on the Display Panel. A single blinking bar mark or no bar mark means batteries should be replaced with fresh ones.

DX coded film can be read by the T90. While manual setting of the film speed to override the auto DX coding is also possible.
