    I do not think you can take multiple exposures with this camera. I have one around here someplace. If i can remember where it might be I will take a look at it.

    With some Minolta SLRs the procedure was

    1. take the first photo
    2. press the button at the bottom of the camera
    3. cock the shutter...film does not move because of the button pushed in
    4. take the second shot
    5. button should come out so that you can take other shots normally.

    hmmm well the problem is, the only button at the bottom of the camera is the rewind button

    That is the right button! but all it does is stop the film from moving forward. It acts like a release which you are using for shooting your two shots on one section of film.

    It is buried in the instructional manual of some Minoltas starting with the SRT 102.
