I want to bracket exposure a high contrast scene but i want to meter for the highlights and let that be the minus exposure and let the camera do the plus stuff on its own. I remember seeing a setting on the menu before to allow this but for the life of me i can not find it again! Anyone know? And another question while im on it, is there a way to tell the flash to fire on the zero exposure if the minus exposure is actually the first shot.. Ie: the flash must fire on the second shot.
Thank you

No, but I read the manual more than once. That helps.

Ok let me explain why i failed to find it. I did read the manual and hence was able to find it over a year ago. only now i want to start practicing the method but i failed to find the setting because i have not been able to get a full nights sleep in over a month because of ''dad brain''. We have a colicky new born son that wont allow me to get any sleep. Try finding any setting on your camera after not sleeping for a month.
