I went to swim meet this morning and ended up with photos like this. What do you think caused what looks like a double exposure?
All but one were like this.

I'm not an expert, but if all your photos came out this way, I'd say something is off with vibration control/reduction. Were you using the same lens all the time?

Yes, same lens--Canon 100-400, which ordinarily produces great photos.

there is a setting that you can set the camera to take multiple exposures.

I shoot with a Canon 5D and there is a menu setting to take an in-camera double exposure.

I had not ever used it before, but was able to sort of recreate your problem. Any chance you have a similar feature and you turned it on by accident somehow?

Is there a chance you were shooting using flash and a slow shutter speed?

I think not! The shutter speed was 1/2000 and no flash was used.

Was in-camera HDR switched on, and movement while camera was making its three exposures was captured like this?

I am puzzled. I only see one image taken with no other details. I do see, and I have no idea what it means, rather odd naming of the image....677037-img_3829.jpeg. Did you do that intentionally? Added data would be helpful. And maybe try the settings again in a different environment?

Ill be watching to see what the answer is

I had a problem with my photos looking similar until I put the camera on a tripod.

Sitting in front of the TV trying to re-create your problem.

Canon 5Dmk4, 100-400 lens @ 280mm, 1/2000, f8, high speed continuous, double exposure feature disabled.

Second shot, same settings but with the double exposure feature enabled.

Double exposure, due to a camera setting.

What it is not:
A flash effect. Whenever a flash is used, there is a motion blur before or after the flash exposure.
Vibrations do not create a double exposure.

Check your manual for double exposure or even strobe photography.

I missed it or it's not here... what camera? Canon has both in lens IS and in body now in some models, right? Problem with one or other or both if two? Also saw a question about HDR settings, that was the first thing I thought of. Turned on in error? Try different lens? Remove and reinsert battery?

Go to p. 212 in your user manual and see what these settings are in your camera. On the 80D you can enable multiple exposures from 2-9 exposures that get blended into a single result. Not sure this is your problem, but worth checking I think. Good luck.

Absolutely correct! I had enabled HDR earlier in the week and forgot to change it back.

Thanks to everyone who contributed. Glad I don’t do this for a living!
