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.

Have you ever imagined what it feels like to shoot with a 100-year-old camera? In the past four months, I have been shooting hundreds of photos with a Contessa Nettel Tessco. I don't know when was the last time its previous owner shot pictures with it. Perhaps 20 to 30 years ago?
A while back I had the unique chance to hang a little with Muhammad Yunus in Uganda. The professor from Bangladesh is no other than a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate for the implementation for micro credits and a shining icon of social business. Now he and his supporters are trying to make the world a better place, in real.
