Bracketing question

Hi everyone,

I've been trying to figure out how to get my two cameras to bracket. I have burst mode set, but I cannot get a range of exposures. I've checked the manuals, and there's not really anything there that I can find. Is there a different name for it that is making me miss the info? Thanks!

cameras: T1i (500D) and XSi (450D). Both are US models.

Thanks!
Dave

It's set in the same way in both. Second shooting menu. You probably have to be in P, Tv or something, not green box or beyond.

It's not in the custom functions, as suggested above.

The more advanced cameras do indeed have functions related to how to perform a bracketing in the custom functions, but not bracketing by itself.
On newer cameras, you can set bracketing through the [Q]uick menu.

either go via menu, or use the "Q" key, then "set" on ev compensation. if you don't select the ev comp. via set button you will change the ev comp. itself, but not bracketing. at least that's on the t2i.

Bracketing is one of those functions I need to commit to using more often.

I have a 400d, and I set bracketting in the (I think) second menu, second item, EV Bracketing and use the wheel to set number of stops each way. I usually forget to put the on-board flash down, and then it doesn't set, though. Keeps me puzzled for a while till I finally remember!

1) Choose Av or Tv mode

2) Go to Menu --> 2nd camera tab --> Expo. comp./AEB --> Press OK --> Turn the shutter speed dial & choose the expo value & increments you prefer.

For future reference, I believe that at least for most of our cameras the Manual entry in the Index comes as "AEB" (Auto Exposure Bracketing).

Mike,

You are "da man". I had to hunt and peck in my manual to figure that one out in order to program the function to my C1. Very useful tool. Thank you.

Once you go somewhere you'll NEVER go back to again, and spend hours struggling to get the pic to turn out like you want it to... you'll begin shooting W bracketing more often! It's amazing how many times a second or third exposure has made quick work of something I would have struggled to get with 1 exposure.
(Don't get me going about the 7 exposure bracketing of the mk iv)
