I have been playing with the Multiple Exposures feature of Fujifilm X-T2 to take photos of nature views with the Moon in them. First you take a shot of the Moon with appropriate aperture, shutter speed and ISO (say f/10, 1/250 and 250), then the camera asks you to take second shot with exposure settings appropriate for everything else in the frame (say f/4, 1/2 and 2000). The camera combines the two shots resulting in something like this:
Now, the problem is that manually adjusting settings between the two shots takes 10-30 seconds (especially when using manual focus as automatic one only works for the Moon itself). This is enough for the Moon to move in the sky so that it does not perfectly fit in its bright spot on the second shot; I have to slightly adjust the camera position in attempt to mitigate the issue.
I am therefore wondering if it can be possible to switch between the two sets of settings instantly using pre-configured shortcuts. X-T2 allows you to assign various settings to quick menu items and function buttons, but none of them seems to allow specifying fixed aperture/speed/ISO combinations. The closest feature is ISO Auto Setting 1,2 and 3 where you specify default/max ISO and min speed but camera can still override those if it wants.
In a nut shell, the questions are:
- Does Fujifilm X-T2 not allow shortcuts for manually fixed exposure settings, or do I simply not see how to set them up?
- Are there any modern cameras allowing this?
