What I'm trying to accomplish is to determine if the camera will or will not allow bracketing when the flash is hooked up.
By reducing shutter speed I introduce partial movement into the sequence of shots. The faster the shutter speed the less movement the slower the shutter speed more movement/motion.
I have a subject where I will be freezing part of the image but want motion to shown in another part. So what I'd like to do is bracket the shutter so I can get 5-7 shots in the same "motion" with varying degrees of motion.
Since the flash will always freeze the motion, I'm assuming that the motion that you want to capture will be lit by ambient lighting, right? in that case, you don't need flash exposure bracketing, which is what most of us were assuming you wanted to do.
When a dedicated flash is attached, AEB is automatically cancelled so you would only be able to do AEB with flash or strobe if it is connected via the PC sync terminal. But it takes time for the flash or strobe to recycle after firing so you'd need to wait until thte flash or strobe is ready before firing the next frame. That means you probably won't be able to shoot in burst mode unless you set the power of the flash such that it can keep up. Not sure if the strobe works the same way, though, as far as recycle vs power is concerned.
