Sorry I read that page yesterday already.. Am I supposed to read something about executing a multi exposure with one click only?

Did you set the number of shots and shooting speed first?

Yes but I need to keep the button pressed to work

Which of the four options have you used to set the drive mode?

I tried all the possible combinations which one do you suggest me to use? If you mean the second I used that one as well with high speed

Just done it on mine.
You want the next option: Interval composite (the end option) and set the interval, no of shots, and start interval. I have the Composite mode on average but you may want one of the others. Use an appropriate drive mode (start interval). That'll do it!
As I said, page 61 of the manual!

Yes tried it as well, but the minimal interval is two seconds. That won't cut for long exposure effects as I need the sense of flow motion for the water. I can't understand why I can shoot bracketing with one click but not multi exposure.

Wait now that I think about it the reason must be the buffer size as the number of expositions is not limited. That's a shame.

Edit: still doesn't make sense as I can keep on shooting continuosly with an external trigger

It saves each exposure onto the memory card and uses them all to create the composite. It doesn't hold them in onboard memory.
The multi exposures will give the effect of a longer exposure.

Thanks it's still not what I needed next time I will need to bring the remote with me. Anyhow I think it still buffers the shoots when used with continuous H shooting.

Surely that's to be expected. Use a slower rate instead. If its for water shots it won't really make much difference.
