    Hi, I was taking progress photos of my body and when I looked closer, I realized the camera was actually seeing through my body. Okay I did find it weird that my camera was able to take pictures that seen through a human and tried to find another probable cause for example maybe reflections but nothing persists. If you look specifically at the door knob in my right arm which is my probable cause in conclusion that my camera can see through humans. The door knob was being blocked by my body but it still showed itself in the photo. You can even see the cracks and border of the wall that was suppose to be blocked by my body. Has anyone ever came across this? Is there something wrong with my genetics? Why is this photo seeing through my body? My photo can be seen here: postimg. org /image/swsralwot/ <-link without spaces

    1) Your link doesn't work for me.
    2) It's not possible for a normal camera to do what you say yours does.
    3) It's not possible for your "genetics" to give the effect you claim.

    try that.
    Sometimes it is better not knowing than having an answer that may be wrong.

    Aaargh!
    I'd say it's a double-exposure or reflections.
    I know some cameras take multiple shots in quick succession and make a "composite" to present as the final picture (there are some hilarious ones posted in various places on the 'net), maybe that's what's happened here.
    It's certainly NOT "x-ray photographs" and equally certainly it's NOT "genetic anomalies".

    Is it gimp or is it photoshop?
    Likely neither because this dweeb would never figure out how to use either one.

    sorry my user options on this forum are limited it wouldnt let me post a link or upload the photo, thank you for posting it on your account. I left my linux system overseas so it's not gimp, I don't have photoshop. I did not in anyway alter this photo by editing it with software other then cropping it which a forensic specialist can dissect my photo and confirm my statement. I have the multi shot option available on my camera but I did not use it at this time as I only have one photo of it's kind. I was also thinking reflections but exhausted this claim due to the lack of evidence.
    1. no multi shot
    2. no reflection
    3. no double exposure

    Can someone please give me more details and explanations?

    Can we kick the immature dan and shlunka out of this topic?

    A quick edit to remove the profanity. It's already been reported. Unfortunately for you, Dywyddyr has already copied it.

    You misunderstood.
    Some cameras automatically use a "multi-shot" exposure to obtain a single picture.
    If you moved at all then that would account for the "x-ray effect".

    I reported it before it was edited. We'll see what happens I guess . . . .

    It might be your camera like Dywyddyr says.

    Or it might be a deliberate fake. With f/22 you have about 30 seconds under dim light to do the double exposure effect.
    You could set up your camera on a tripod and using the bulb or the delayed shot setting to step into position, wait about 20 seconds after the shutter opens and then quickly step out of the frame for the rest of the shot.
    You could have entered the shot after the exposure started to get the same effect.

    In your photo there is some excessive blurring and extra bits of image, image that looks a bit like a shadow around your head, so you likely moved a little when you were doing this.

    Edit:
    I almost forgot to mention you would need to set your camera to aperture priority instead of shutter priority before trying this double exposure trick.

    ps. You would have had better results even with Digikam.

    Edit 2:
    Even with the double exposure setting mentioned by Dywyddyr being used it is still almost certainly deliberate, but the artifacts around your head suggest you used the aperture setting method instead of the double exposure setting.

    It must have been a pretty good insult.
    I am sorry I missed it because I might have been able to use it someday, if ever I become more mature.

    It was childish. Just a string of goofy profanity -- something a 10 year old would think of.

    This is not YOUR topic, nor do you have any privleges or authority to determine who may post. And Chuck is quite correct, in that your post contained a string of profanity.

    The moderators saw the immature profanity-laced insult that you posted. Take another look at the moderator admonishment a few posts up -- by adelady.

    If you moved at all then that would account for the "x-ray effect".
    In addition some CCD image sensors require "resetting" between shots. If the reset circuit failed you effectively get double exposures.
