I know I can do white balance bracketing, but can you do exposure bracketing without needing to change the exposure for every shot?

I want to try some HDR photography, but its a bit of a pain to change the settings with the camera on the tripod AND be sure to not move anything one ioda.

Hi Luxowell,

I have a Canon 350/ XT. It's easy to do exposure bracketing. Check in the manual for more details.

But basically... go to a creative zone (e.g. AV), then menu #2. Go to AEB (press set to enter it, and set to confirm) then set the amount (F-stops) of exposure by usingthe main dial (or 4 "arrow keys"). Remember to press set to confirm. You'll see 3 dots indicating the exposurebracketing.

Set drive mode to continuous mode (multiple photos). Press and hold shutter button till 3 photos are taken, they should be exposure bracketed.

Then you can take your photo on tripod this way without needing to reset after each one. But of course remember to CANCEL the AEB and continuous mode settings for "normal" photography again or you'll end up with over and under-exposed shots...

Thanks man! Appreciate the tip!

I knew there was a way to do it, but the manual didn't seem to help.
