ZX-5n Multiple-Exposure Mode?

The review page of the ZX-5n says that it has the ability to shoot multiple-exposures. I have the manual to the camera and it does not tell you how to. The drive selector also does not have the multiple-exposure setting that other cameras in this line have. So is there some trick I do not know about or is it just a typo?

I think you're right - I also don't see how one could set the ZX-5n to do multiple exposures.

I have updated the table in the review section accordingly.

The MZ7 can do it, by pressing the drive mode between single-continuous-multiexp
I guess the MZ5 should have it too

Please explain

Please explain.
The drive mode selector is around the shutter key (it is also the OFF/lock switch, MZ-5) and beneath the speed wheel (it is also the auto bracketing selector, MZ-5n). There is nothing to press...

Yep, only in the ZX-7 and similar "program mode" bretheren. Doable because they have an LCD menu based interface. The highly "knobby" MZ-3, ZX-5, MZ-5, ZX-5n, and MZ-5n don't have multiple exposure.
