Seems to me like this should be achievable through software.
I'm kind of curious as to why even mid-range Nikons can do this, while only the top of the line Canons (new 1D and 5D MKIII) are capable of it.
Is there a hardware or technical limitation preventing this from being implemented on something like the 600D?
As it is I have to rely on an old EOS 500 film camera to do these (or make them in photoshop - which takes all the fun out of it!).

You make a good point.
Canon seems more interested in carving out and staying in segments than offering more bang for buck to buyers to get them into the system.
There is a LOT that can be done in software. Just look at Magic Lantern! 😉

Yeah I've been secretly hoping that the ML guys will implement it! Doesn't look like Canon have any interest in doing so.
I think one of the recent ML beta builds allows a double exposure 'preview' mode, where you can overlay two previously shot images (but afaik you can't save the resulting image). But that's not much use to me, really.
Would be nice to at least get an explanation from Canon. I'm seeing some great multiple exposures on flickr and 500px lately from Nikon users, and I'm starting to get a little bit jealous...

ummm... so why don't you buy Nikon then? I bought a Canon because Nikon could not provide me with good video

True... In that case you can buy Canon Cameras that support multiple exposures then. Models that support this function is the Canon EOS 5D Mark iii and the Canon EOS 1D-X. I think this function will not be introduced in new firmware, because this is part of marketing strategy // better reason to buy a newer Canon model.

Allow me to introduce you to the 6D. Mid-range pricing, and can do multiple exposures. I can almost guarantee that this capability will filter down through future models.

Because Canon is not a customer friendly, for example why the 5DIII does not have a built-in flash. Why Canon does not release a compact/light version of the Canon 1Dx that is travel/senior people friendly with a battery charger that is small such as the one of the 5DIII.
