Multiple exposures with 645D

Hey everyone,

I'm confused as to how to take multiple exposures with the 645D. Has anyone tried this? It's not something that I'd use all that much, but not knowing is bugging me.
I've set the camera up for 3 exposures and was expecting to see one image with all three exposures superimposed. But all I got were 3 individual images. Tried this in JPEG and RAW with same results. I already RTFM, which wasn't helpful.

Are you confusing exposure bracketing with the multiple exposure feature? You will have to go into the menu to set up the latter and then hit the "start shooting" soft button on the monitor.

Thanks Ole for the tip. No, I wasn't confusing the two completely different settings. I just didn't realize that the "Start Shooting" words on the screen were actually something that I had to choose and then press OK. The overall process just wasn't immediately intuitive to me.
