    I'm scanning a roll of film right now that came out of my Fuji TX-1. I am surprised to find several images have been double exposed. I can find no reference at all to a double exposure mode with this camera so I am at a loss at how this happened.

    The only thing I can think of would be a dying battery (or a dying camera).

    Any ideas?

    Edit: Never mind.....two negatives were stuck together perfectly on top of each other.

    I don't think so, there should be somekind of link between transport and shutter. Which seems broken.

    If you don’t mind me asking: how did that happen?

    No transport at all > double-exposure

    I cut the negatives into two frame each sizes and then placed them under an object that would keep them flat while I ate dinner. Two negatives ended up on top of each other and I did not notice this when I loaded them into my scanner. Once scanned they looked *exactly* like a double exposure. It was soooo weird. Upon closer examination they came apart and none of the frames were actually double exposed.

    Interesting. I have never done that particular move.

    You should probably explore that because it looks pretty good!

    I had a Contax once that would fail to wind. I didn't catch it for a while so I had rolls of film with as many as perhaps 5 or 6 shots stacked on top of each other. I have some dune images that are pretty neat because of it. But that is a different issue than your accidental double-up.
