Automatically vary settings over a series of pictures.
Press the DRIVE button to display drive mode options.
Press the focus stick (focus lever) up or down to highlight one of the following:
Option OAE BKT WISO BKT XFILM SIMULATION BKT Option VWHITE BALANCE BKT YDYNAMIC RANGE BKT hHDR
Press the focus stick left or right to highlight the desired bracketing settings.
Bracketing settings for OAE BKT are selected using ASHOOTING SETTING > AE BKT SETTING.
Bracketing settings for XFILM SIMULATION BKT are selected using ASHOOTING SETTING > FILM SIMULATION BKT.
Press MENU/OK to select.
Use ASHOOTING SETTING > AE BKT SETTING to choose the bracketing amount and number of shots. Each time the shutter button is pressed, the camera will take the specified number of shots: one using the metered value for exposure and the others over- or under-exposed by multiples of the selected bracketing amount.
Regardless of the bracketing amount, exposure will not exceed the limits of the exposure metering system.
Select a bracketing amount (±1, ±2/3, or ±1/3). Each time the shutter is released, the camera will take a picture at the current sensitivity and process it to create two additional copies, one with sensitivity raised and the other with sensitivity lowered by the selected amount.
XFILM SIMULATION BKT
Each time the shutter is released, the camera takes one shot and processes it to create a total of three copies with different film simulation settings, chosen using the ASHOOTING SETTING > FILM SIMULATION BKT option in the shooting menu.
VWHITE BALANCE BKT
Select a bracketing amount (±1, ±2, or ±3). Each time the shutter is released, the camera takes one shot and processes it to create three copies: one at the current white balanced setting, one with fine-tuning increased by the selected amount, and another with fine-tuning decreased by the selected amount.
YDYNAMIC RANGE BKT
Each time the shutter button is pressed, the camera takes three shots with different dynamic ranges: 100% for the first, 200% for the second, and 400% for the third.
While dynamic range bracketing is in effect, sensitivity will be restricted to a minimum of ISO 800 (or to a minimum of ISO 200 to 800 when an auto option is selected for sensitivity); the sensitivity previously in effect is restored when bracketing ends.
Each time the shutter button is pressed, the camera takes multiple shots at different exposures and combines them into a single high–dynamic-range image, reducing loss of detail in highlights and shadows. Choose the amount the camera varies exposure from AUTO, 1.0 EV, 1.5 EV, 2.0 EV, 2.5 EV, and 3.0 EV.
Keep the camera steady. If the camera is moved or the subject changes during shooting, the shots may be recorded separately instead of being combined into a single image. The camera may fail to record an image if the subject moves during shooting.
