    Can anyone tell me how to set this up within the OMD? I think it can be done in photoshop with masking but she clearly does it within the camera.

    on the blog it states that the OMD is capable of doing this, any help appreciated.

    (multiple exposure)
    Record multiple exposures in a single image, using the option currently selected for
    image quality.
    1 Select [Multiple Exposure] in shooting menu X (P. 111).

    2 Adjust settings.
    Frame Select [2f].
    Auto Gain
    When set to [On], the brightness of each
    frame is set to 1/2 and the images are
    overlaid. When set to [Off], the images
    are overlaid with the original brightness
    of each frame.
    When set to [On], a RAW image
    recorded on a card can be overlaid with
    multiple exposures and stored as a
    separate image. The number of pictures
    taken is one.
    • a is displayed in the monitor while multiple exposure
    is in effect.

    3 Take pictures.
    • a is displayed in green when shooting starts.
    • Press D to delete the last shot.
    • The previous shot is superimposed on the view through
    the lens as a guide to framing the next shot.

    % Tips
    • To overlay 3 or more frames: Select RAW for [K] (P. 54) and use the [Overlay] option to
    make repeated multiple exposures.
    • For more information on overlaying RAW images: g “Image overlay” (P. 73)
    # Cautions
    • The camera will not go to sleep while multiple exposure is in effect.
    • Photographs taken with other cameras can not be included in a multiple exposure.
    • When [Overlay] is set to [On], the images displayed when a RAW image is selected are
    developed with the settings at the time of shooting.
    • To set the shooting functions, cancel multiple exposure shooting first. Some functions
    cannot be set.
    • Multiple exposure is cancelled automatically from the first picture in the following
    The camera is turned off/The q button is pressed/The MENU button is pressed/The
    shooting mode is set to a mode other than P, A, S, M/The battery power runs out/Any
    cable is connected to the camera
    • When a RAW image is selected using [Overlay], the JPEG image for the image recorded
    in JPEG+RAW is displayed.
    • When shooting multiple exposures using bracketing, priority is given to multiple exposure
    shooting. While the overlay image is being saved, bracketing is reset to the factory default
