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 W ISO BKT s Bracketing V WHITE BALANCE BKT
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.
VWHITE 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 400; 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 ASHOOTING 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.
