I got this result when using the cam this week, the settings were 1/1600 - f11 - ISO 640 so I don't think it was caused by movement if anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them Smile

I've seen this effect before whilst using film.
In fact, I've used it deliberately to create "see-through" people and objects. It's done by exposing the same frame twice using half the exposure that's really required each time and removing the "see-through" item betwen shots so that it's only half way to the correct exposure.
This looks as if you've somehow exposed the same frame twice, similarly to the way that I've described above. I suppose there might be a way but I've no idea how you'd do that, even deliberately, using a digital camera.
Is it possible perhaps that your sensor has "seen" a reflection from the inside of the lens and the arrival of two images at (almost) the same time has tricked it into thinking that it's exposed correctly?

Must be a double exposure. Can't think how. A gremlin in the software perhaps.

Look carefully at the free hand of the man holding the fork. In one of the two superimposed images the hand is, I'd say, two inches or so further from the fork handle than in the other. This is a double exposure. The D700 has a clearly documented multiple exposure function, by the way, including the ability to scale the exposures to result in a correctly exposed end result.

Well, my best guess is a ripple in the space-time continuum. Have you been communicating with any alien life forms lately?

The D700 does has the ability to do an in-camera multiple exposure. If you look at the image in ViewNX (free download from Nikon if you haven't got it loaded or can't find the disc) and select the image, then look in the Metadata tab, if it was a multiple exposure it will tell you under the Image Settings area. (note that there will be no comment if it was a single exposure).

I have uploaded a screen grab of the exif file as on CS4 I can't see anywhere there about it being a double exposure Smile

PS doesn't directly report that information. That's why I suggested ViewNX as it does.

At least you know what it was, and Multiple Exposure resets once it has done the requisite number of exposures, which is a good thing (sometimes).
