in days of yore, one would push the rewind release button on the bottom of the camera while "winding" the film in order to take multiple images on a single frame of film...

now i suppose everything is done via layers and such in LR or PS...

i still dont understand layers or how to apply them or how to use them so, is there a provision for double exposure images with a 5D3?

My experience in placing the 2nd image in the camera is that they're usually "almost" right. Using layers in PS allows you to nudge them a bit to fix that problem.

The new cameras support multiple exposures, multiple frames, and work pretty well. For an exacting multiple exposure with total control, you would do this in post, but it is very possible to get many situations in camera with minimal effort and nearly the same exactness.

If you doubt what I say, here is a tutorial. To get the most out of this feature, you must use the Live View mode for the subsequent shots after the first. ...with-a-canon-5d-mark-iii/ (external link)
