Multiple exposures; K-7

My K-7 started exposing twice today; it had not done this before.

Went to the Multiple Exposure menu, which offers exposures of 2 to 9.

How do I turn Multiple Exposures off?? Have been using AV mode…

I have the k-7 but I haven't done that for a long time. I think it automatically reverts back to single shot, so if you want to repeat that, you have to go the MENU system and turn it on again, unless someone finds a way to set it in USER mode.

Multi exposures, Multi exposures, Multi exposures,

I didn't intentionally set it to multiple exposure mode…

Beats me how it came to be set that way; probably touched a button somewhere.

But I want it in single exposure mode!

P.S. Figured it out. Pressing the up arrow in Capture mode brings the Drive Mode menu; one of the choices is Single Frame Shooting.

Multiple frame (continuous) shooting mode and multiple exposures (few high end cameras have that including Pentax k10D, k20D, k-7 and k-5) are completely different things. The shooting mode in the Fn key setting whereas multiple exposure is in the menu. I am glad that you get it all sorted out.

Multiple Exposure will allow you to take several exposures, and they will be combined in the Same photo.

Continuous shooting is just that. The camera keeps taking photos as long as you hold the shutter release down and focus is locked (If in AF-S). It can be set for either high speed or low speed. The RAW frame rate is one of the things that was vastly improved on the k5 over the k7.
