result from bracketing

Hi folks. I am not quite clear about this issue so I would be grateful for any assistance. Assume that my K10D has no other special settings applied to exposure other than operating in Aperture Priority mode . Now, if I setup bracketing (I ahven't done this before) for 3 images (1 EV step etc) I understand that if I take a photo now I could have 3 images taken, ie 1EV underexposed, Current setting, 1EV overexposed, based upon the current std settings. Now, if I deliberately dial in 1EV+......and repeat the shot, is bracketing now based upon (currnet +1EV) or just the original currnet settings? (hope this is clear enough)

thanks

Hi. If you look at the LCD display on the top of your K10D you will see three tick marks showing the three bracketed exposures, one of which will blink when you half depress the shutter button indicating the current exposure (in case you had forgotten how many you had taken). If you then dial in an exposure compensation you'll see all three little tick marks move as you do so indicating the level of compensation compared to the reading. So, +/- 1 stop bracketing with +1EV compensation will give you 0, +1 and +2EV shots.

Best wishes, Kris.

I also have a question about bracketing on the K10D.
I would like to do +/-2, is this possible with 3 images or does it have to be 5?

EDIT: Comment deleted as the information I gave was inaccurate. Bad information is worse than no information.

Hi Mannesty
Hate to correct you. Just fired some bracket shots. Set of 3: o, +2, -2.
Adjustment while holding bracket button and dial 3 or 5 bracket choice with rear wheel and 0.5, 1,1.5 or 2 brackets using front dial. This was on my K20D set in custom menu for 0.5 EV spacings (alt is 0.3). Thats probably clear as mud! See P 129 in the manual.
cheers

Damn. You're perfectly correct. Sorry Mike, bum info. As BB2 says, press the button at top left of the camera back and use the front wheel to choose from Off, 3, or 5 shots, and the rear wheel for spacing.

Thanks for the enlightenment BB2.

Additional note:
K10D - when using bracketing (esp for HDR), you should use a remote release. If you use the shutter you have to press it once for each bracketed shot.
K20D - there is a custom option to rattle off all bracketed images on one shutter press.

And yes, as noted, you can have 2Ev apart, either 3 or 5 shots. 2Ev/5 is what I use for HDR I even have it saved under the "User" setting How cool is that!

If you keep your finger on the button it will fire off 3 shots in sequence.
