Default Canon 400d AE bracketing

I am messing around with ae bracketing, the instructions are a bit vague,,,

Changed the settings, set the AE settings, but, I am only getting the one pic...

Any suggestions?

Dave

Dave generally if you set the camera for bracketing, you set the amunt I.E. 1/2 stop over and 1/2 stop under the standard exposure. You then take 3 pics. there will be 1/2 stop difference in exposure from shot to shot.
Some cameras like mine will bracket up to 5 shots or more.

Hey that was sensible for a nutter.

Should have said Dave YOU have to take the number of shots you have set for bracketing e.g. 3, 5 etc.

Oh and do not forget to turn bracketing off when you are finished!!!

Ken

I have done that +1 % -1, press set, then take a pic, it only shows/stores one. The Instrcution manual is a bit so so..

Select [AEB].
* Under the [m] tab, select [AEB],
then press <Set>.
2 Set the AEB amount.
* Press the <> key to set the AEB
amount, then press <Set>.
*When you press the shutter button
halfway, the <h> icon and AEB
amount will be displayed on the LCD
monitor.
3 Take the picture.
* Focus and press the shutter button
completely. The three bracketed
shots will be taken in this sequence:
Standard, decreased, and increased
exposure.


Please can someone help before Old Mo comes with the answer I would never live it down..


Q. Does it automatically take 3 pics?

You need to take the three pics, generally the first will be over exposed, the second, correct the third under, but you'll quickly learn that this is not a very good way of taking pictures. Better if the Auto bracketing is done in one direction, for example, you know that the meter is going to be fooled by a bright scene and you want to compensate. Your camera should let you choose 3 different amounts, 3rd stop over, half over and a full stop over, ie all over, rather than the standard, 1 over 1 on and 1 under. Once you apply the thought to do this you'll find you get better results in manual mode and doing the bracketing yourself.

Some Canons did take the three when in High Speed burst mode, Not au fait with your model but I'm sure you need to press the button three times.

If your camera is like mine Dave it will automatically set the bracketing you want. It does not take 3 or whatever photos YOU have to press the shutter however many times you have bracketed for. It will auto set the exposure to what you set in bracketing.
