Default Can't get G2 auto exposure bracketing to work

I have been trying to get the (AEB) to work on my G2. I follow the directions in the manual and get the bracketing set, or "expanded" as the manual calles it, but the camera only takes 1 shot. Not the three I expected based on the manual saying "..take 3 shots after you press the shutter button once"

Anyone know anything about this or been successful ?

Default Auto Exposure

Hey Adobeman,

I bought a G2 and have been using it for 2 months, love it and use autoexposure bracketing
I think I might know your problem. When you get to the AEB selection, you must move the arrow using the Omni key at this point. This will set the bracketed range. The more you move it, the more variance in exposure (Don't forget to move the the "arrow" back to the center once you want to turn off AEB). If you are doing this and still having a problem, make sure you are not trying to set AEB in the "Auto Mode". It only works in the "P", "Tv" and "Av" modes. I rarely use the Auto Mode anymore since "P" automatically adjusts aperature and shutter speed but lets you set everything else. If you've done both of my suggested fixes and it doesn't work, let me know. I love problem solving!

If you haven't tried the White Balance adjustment (in P,Tv or Av) give it a go. I've gotten incredible results vs auto WB :roll: .
