Best material to absorb as much light as possible

What you need, is Vantablack. This awesome material reflects only .04% of light - way too little to affect those silver halides. That being said, I don't think it's commercially available. Perhaps ...

Can I correct double exposure of 35mm film?

Is there a term for overlapping images due to incomplete film transport?

The term people usually use is "double exposure". As far as I know, it is only useful to do when you don't move film at all, not move it a fraction of a frame length. On many film cameras there is a ...

Is it possible to get double or multiple exposures on a used SD card?

What seems to be happening is that the camera's shutter is open for much longer than the duration of the flash. If there is something in the frame when the shutter is open before or after the flash, ...

Is it possible to set two exposure values and set them on a loop?

Depends on the camera, but look at bracketing settings. Most cameras allow you to take 3 exposures - one correct (as metered), one underexposed and one overexposed, but some allow 2 exposures too - e....
