I like to fiddle with cameras. The less invasive, the better!
A lot of cameras will do double exposures. Here is one way to find out if your camera will. The trick is simple and non invasive. After shooting the shot you want to double over: Hold down your rewind button while cocking the shutter. Watch the rewind spool closely while cocking, (it helps to make sure the film is tight), if the spool does not turn, you can make the double shot.

By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
