Automatically vary settings over a series of pictures.
Press the [DRIVE/DELETE] button and select the desired bracketing option in the drive-mode menu.
Press the focus stick (focus lever) up or down to highlight one of the following:
Option W[ISO BKT] V[WHITE BALANCE BKT] s[Bracketing]
Press the focus stick left or right to highlight the desired bracketing settings.
Press [MENU/OK] to select.
Select a bracketing amount (±1/3, ±2/3, or ±1) in the drive mode display. 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.
V[WHITE BALANCE BKT]
Select a bracketing amount (±1, ±2, or ±3) in the drive mode display. 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.
O [AE BKT]
Use A [SHOOTING SETTING] > [AE BKT SETTING] to choose the bracketing amount, bracketing order, and number of shots. The camera will take the specified number of shots in sequence: 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.
X [FILM SIMULATION BKT]
Each time the shutter is released, the camera takes one shot and processes it to create copies with different film simulation settings, chosen using A [SHOOTING SETTING] > [FILM SIMULATION BKT].
Y [DYNAMIC 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 640; the sensitivity previously in effect is restored when bracketing ends.
Z [FOCUS BKT]
Each time the shutter button is pressed, the camera takes a series of photos, varying focus with each shot. The A [SHOOTING SETTING] > [FOCUS BKT SETTING] item offers a choice of [MANUAL] and [AUTO] bracketing.
Do not adjust zoom during shooting.
Use of a tripod is recommended.
In [MANUAL] mode, you choose the following.
|[FRAMES]||Choose the number of shots.|
|[STEP]||Choose the amount focus changes with each shot.|
|[INTERVAL]||Choose the interval between shots.|
Focus and [FRAMES]/[STEP]
The relation between focus and the options chosen for [FRAMES] and [STEP] is shown in the illustration.
CStarting focus position
- Focus proceeds from the starting position toward infinity.
- Small [STEP] values translate to small changes in focus, larger values to larger changes.
- Regardless of the option chosen for [FRAMES], shooting ends when focus reaches infinity.
In [AUTO] mode, the camera calculates [FRAMES] and [STEP] automatically.
Select A[SHOOTING SETTING] in the shooting menu, highlight [FOCUS BKT SETTING], and press [MENU/OK].
Select [AUTO] and choose an [INTERVAL].
The view through the lens will be displayed.
Focus on the nearest end of the subject and press [MENU/OK].
The selected focus distance appears as [A] on the focus distance indicator.
The same focus range can be chosen by focusing on the farthest end of the subject first.
Focus on the farthest end of the subject and press [DISP/BACK].
The selected focus distance ([B]) and focus range ([A] to [B]) appear on the focus distance indicator.
Instead of pressing the [DISP/BACK] button, you can press [MENU/OK] and select [A] again.
The camera will calculate values for [FRAMES] and [STEP] automatically. The number of frames will appear in the display.
