How do you do a double exposure in camera
Once you have composed your scene, the camera is locked down, and your settings are as you would like…do the following:

-Press the MENU button

-Go to Shooting Menu 2

-Select Multiple Exposure

-Set the FRAME option to “2F”

-Auto Gain option can be both on or off…experiment for different looks.

-Overlay option can be left off. This makes a second exposure ontop of an image you have already captured. Great for some things…but not what we are doing right now.

-Exit back out to your live view. You should see the Multi-exposure icon at the top of your screen to show its active.

How do you do a double exposure in camera
Both the Lumix LX 100.2 and the Olympus E-M5 have this feature built-in.
As the way through the menu has already been Richard I'll add some notes from the practical side.

It took me a long time and the hint by a friend of mine to discover the creative possibilities this feature offers (re-note), see musical performance thread for the best overlays I've seen so far:
https://www.mu-43.com/threads/musical-performance-photos-thread.39802/page-38#post-1362619.
In Photoshop you can overlay two photos, OK. Here you can influence the creative process in the process of taking your photo. The E-M5 lets you change speed, f-stop, sharpness and zoom factor from the first to the second shot. You see the first one in the viewfinder dimmed in brightness after you've taken it, so you can decide where to put your overlay. I like playing with sharp-unsharp and zoom in-out in the two overlays.

These options are not possible with the Lumix. There you have to take the same presets for both. So there is less creative range, but still it's fun playing around and seeing what's possible.

So here are two more just to give you an idea.
