Default K2000 bracketing

So I wanted to take a shot for HDR conversion. But I'll be damned, I can find how to set it up to take a bracketed shot. Searched the manual, the menus, but just not seeing it.
So what do they call it, and how does one get it to take a bracketed shot?
This is the first time since I got this camera I wanted to try it just F.Y.I.
Been learning the basics of the camera so far.

Sorry I'm not familiar with the K2000. But, on my K20 I have one button I press left of the view finder for bracketed shots. Also under custom settings in the menu you can set options for how it works.
Hope that helps.

It's called "auto bracket" in the manual. For the K2000, check page 106 in the manual, you'll find the directions there. It doesn't look like you can take a bracketed series with one push of the shutter, you have to push the shutter 3 times.

I may have misunderstood, but you can also convert a picture to HDR and still save the original...in camera, without using any out of camera, post processing.

Page 192 in your owner's manual tells you how. I think there is a total of 12 effects you can apply , plus a customized version to any picture you wish.

on the K2000 custom menu item 6 is for setting the auto bracketing order, then under drive mode (4 way control top button scroll over to +/-) drive mode auto bracket, you only have to push the shutter release once.

Thanks folks. It was the Auto part that I was missing. Exactly what I wanted to know.
So simple once you know...
