Having read the manual, still am not sure if what i want to do is possible.

I want to take Multiple Exposure (2) in quick secession with varying shutters speeds, is this possible?

For example, i want to take a picture of a train speeding towards my spot (not on the tracks obviously) with a long shutter speed (3 seconds or so) to get a nice blur..

Then a rapid shot at say 1/1000 of a second..

trying to produce a sharp clear image of a train, with streaks.. Gosh, i hope that makes since...

Manually, changing the shutter speed allows the train to get too far from the streak...

thanks for the help..

Try shooting at dawn/dusk, and using rear-curtain sync with a flash. Only take one frame.

This is usually done with flash and rear sync.
