For multiple exposures on my Olympus cameras the procedure for multiple exposures is as follows:
1. After the first exposure is ended, erect the rewind crank and turn it clockwise as far as it will go to take up film slack.
2. While holding both the rewind knob/crank and the rewind button/release with your fingers to prevent them from moving, wind the film advance lever. Theoretically the film is not wound but the shutter is cocked by this operation.
3. Press the shutter release as you would do normally, and double exposure will occur.
4. By repeating steps 2 an 3, the frame will be exposed as many times as you want. However, the frame counter advances each time the shutter is cocked.
5. After ending the multiple exposure, put the lens cap on and make a blind shot.
NOTE: the frame may shift slightly.
I have also gotten as many as 38 exposures. My frame counters have the number 36 as well as two additional indicators. There is a dot following "36" and then the letter "E". Continuing to advance the film past "E" will do no harm as long as there is still film in the cartridge.
Additionally, there is available the 250 Film Back 1 to utilize bulk film.
