Wagaboo when I was useing my old SLR, It was all manual settings and you didn't have a review button to see what you had just shot, so you would take what you thought was the best shot. Then you would shoot another with the film speed or the F-Stop or both turned up one notch then down one notch bracketing the supposed good shot. That way, since film processing took so long, you would have a better chance of getting a good shot the first time. Had to do it that way cause as you know, you don't get a second chance sometimes. If I thought it was a really good one, I'd sometimes bracket 2 or three notches up and down. Hope that helps cause Right now I couldn't help much with these digicams. I don't think bracketing a shot is as relevant for them as with the old SLR film ones

Yeah, but ya hit the wife. Next time please detach the cow from the rawhide. My insurance can't take much more of this man. Seriously, there is a way to bracket your shots by using manual mode, but I use auto for right now so I wouldn't be of much help. And the wife says to quit hanging around with bone throwing hoodlums, but you know me I usually do the opposite of what she says.That's why I got all the knots on my head. A disobediant husband is ALWAYS a knot head. If you don't believe me ask a husband that has disobeyed his wife. He's either a sore head or a knot head, according to the severity and proximity of his disobedience.
Knot headed DAWG
P.S. Wife said to growl hello THEN BITE!!!

Shootin' the moon? I did that last night (it was a full moon in case you missed it), and I used the same "Braket" technique as you did with the old K1000 to get it right. The first few shots were too bright, so I worked down and finally got this with my DX6490:
