    Hi Guys,
    My Casio QV-2900UX has a "Best shot" menu where you can photograph the
    same person twice in the same picture by framing them within outlines
    on the viewfinder but I can't figure out how it works.
    I've tried getting the 2 frames on the LCD screen, taking one picture
    and then the other but that didn't work.
    I've tried framing one shot, depressing the button, setting up the
    second shot and then releasing the button but that didn't work either.
    Any clues?
    Ta muchly,

    I know of 2 BestShot modes that may be the ones you referred to:

    - Coupling Shot:
    Combine 2 halves of a picture. E.g. you and your wife in
    front of the London bridge, but without having a 3rd person
    take the shot.
    1. Photograph the left side. AF and AF-box is in the left half
    only. Right half is gray and notably darker in the LCD
    before the shot.
    2. The left half of the LCD now not only works as a preview
    (as usual), but has the image you shot overlayed, too.
    No AF, no AF-box. You are to align the preview and the
    overlaid image on the left half, then press the shutter for
    the right half of the image.
    => There you are: a photo made from 2 half images.

    - Pre-shot:
    Precisely tell someone else how you want the image framed.
    1. Frame the photograph, e.g. the London Bridge. AF is done
    now as well! The image you shoot now will not be permanently
    recorded, it'll just be used to convey the framing.
    2. The image you just shot will overlay the preview. No AF.
    3. Pass camera to stranger, saying "Hold it so that the images
    are aligned, then press the button". The image thus shot
    will be recorded as a normal snapshot, without any hint at
    all from your first image.
    => There you are, a snapshot of you in front of the London
    bridge, and the bridge is exactly where you wanted it,
    even though the stranger had no idea how to use a camera!
