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


Who ever would do that? (Me. Often!).

I had a similar outcome several years back with a Pentax istD. I had it set to single exposure, manual mode, do not recall the exposure settings. It did not happen frequently, just once in a while. I heard the shutter rapidly open and close twice and I got a double exposure. I never figured it out. Probably happened less than half a dozen times in the six or seven years I had that camera.

That's a sneaky thing hidden deep in the user manual where few of us venture to read LOL. Very helpful when needed but totally mystifying when engaged unknowingly. I stepped into this one early on.

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

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.


Could be an indication that your shutter is approaching end of life.... I have never used a camera till shutter failure but from what I have read double exposure is an indication.

This doesnt look like a “multiple exposure” shot to me. It looks more like excess shaking or shutter speed too low??

no, the iPhone 14 pro has an HDR setting. I haven't used it yet.

I am not familiar with Cannon but looking at the picture it is definitely a double exposure. Both images seem to be decent just overlapped, which can happen if you hand hold while trying to take an HDR exposure. With some cameras it's possible to set HDR for one shot and then it returns to normal. If you are not ready for this it can be quite confusing. Try hand holding for an HDR and then compare. I think you will find your problem.

I do that on my 5D Mk4 sometimes too. But when I forget to turn it off and take the next shot, I realise straight away what I have done.
It can happen when either the HDR function or the multiple exposure function is left turned on, although from memory I think the multiple exposure function turns itself off each time you turn your camera off, where as HDR remains turned on.
