The Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim (and the slim devil cameras) work great for double exposures. Simply take your first exposure and wind the camera to the next frame (this will cock the shutter) then hold down the re-wind release button on the bottom of the camera as you crank back the film (following the direction of the arrow) 24 clicks – this will line your first frame up for a second exposure – snap away.
