Multi-Exposure With Remote

Taking some waterfall photos and experimenting with soft looking water. In the drive menu, I select Multi-Exposure - Remote Control and set composite mode to Average and number of shots to 0020. I have to click the remote 20 times for this to work, which it does quite nicely. However, is there a way to do the same averaging in camera and only have to click once to start the process? Thanks

Try using Multi-exposure with the Continuous option. You will have to hold the button down.

Alternatively, Interval mode with composite and a short interval is another option.

You could change from "Multi-Exposure-Composite" (which requires one button-press-per-shot or holding the button down in continuous mode) to "Interval-Composite" (which requires only a single button-press to imitate an automatic timed series).

The only tricky bit with interval-composite (and also a problem with multi-exposure-continuous) is that if the time between shots is too short, then moving objects (flying blobs of water or floating leaves) end up as unnatural dashed lines or repeated objects in the composite image. The solution is to set the interval between shots to be long enough for any moving object in the scene to move a long way (preferably out of the frame).
