Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB)
Using the exposure compensation setting, you can capture images at different exposure levels, and then select the optimal image later as shown in the example below. This is called AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketing) shooting.
You can set your camera so that the shutter speed and aperture value are changed automatically to capture three successive shots with exposure bracketing of ±2-stops in 1/3-stop increments.
For details on exposure compensation, please refer to the Related Information section.
1. Set the power switch to <ON>.
2. Press the <MENU> button to display the menu.
3. Under the [
] tab, select [Expo.comp./AEB], then press <
4. Turn the <

5. Press <
> button to exit the menu, the AEB range will be displayed on the LCD monitor.
6. Focus and press the shutter button completely. The three bracketed shots will be taken in this sequence: standard exposure, decreased exposure, and increased exposure.
The way photographs are shot differs depending on the drive mode settings.
- Using AEB with [ ] (single shooting).
Press the shutter button three times to take the three bracketed
shots. The three bracketed shots will be exposed in the following sequence: standard exposure, decreased exposure, and increased exposure.
- Using AEB with [ ] (continuous shooting).
If you press the shutter button completely, the three bracketed shots will be taken continuously in this sequence: standard exposure, decreased exposure, and increased exposure. The shooting will then stop automatically.
- Using AEB with [ ] (10-sec. self-timer) and [ ] (2-sec. self-timer ).
you can take three continuous shots after a 10-sec. or 2-sec. delay.
- Using AEB with [ ] (10-sec. self-timer plus continuous shots).
The number of continuous shots will be three times the number set.
- AEB cannot be used with flash, Multi Shot Noise Reduction, Creative filters, or bulb exposures.
- If [ : Auto Lighting Optimizer] is set to any setting other than [Disable], the AEB’s effect may be minimal.
- Follow steps 3 to 5 to turn off the AEB amount display.
- The AEB setting will be canceled automatically if the power is set to <OFF>, flash recycling is complete, etc.
