Exposure and Flash Bracketing
In continuous low speed and continuous high speed modes, shooting 
will pause after the number of shots specified in the bracketing 
program have been taken. Shooting will resume the next time the 
shutter-release button is pressed.  In self-timer mode, the camera will 
take the number of shots selected in Step 2 on page 133 each time the 
shutter-release button is pressed, regardless of the option selected for 
Custom Setting c3 (Self-timer) > Number of shots (
between shots is however controlled by Custom Setting c3 (Self-timer
Interval between shots.  In other modes, one shot will be taken each 
time the shutter-release button is pressed.
If the memory card fills before all shots in the sequence have been 
taken, shooting can be resumed from the next shot in the sequence 
after the memory card has been replaced or shots have been deleted to 
make room on the memory card. If the camera is turned off before all 
shots in the sequence have been taken, bracketing will resume from the 
next shot in the sequence when the camera is turned on.
Exposure Bracketing
The camera modifies exposure by varying shutter speed and aperture 
(programmed auto), aperture (shutter-priority auto), or shutter speed 
(aperture-priority auto, manual exposure mode). If On is selected for 
ISO sensitivity settings > Auto ISO sensitivity control (
modes e, f, and g, the camera will modify exposure by varying ISO 
sensitivity and only vary shutter speed and/or aperture if the limits of 
exposure system are exceeded.  Custom Setting e6 (Auto bracketing 
(mode M)
0 308) can be used to change how the camera performs 
exposure and flash bracketing in manual exposure mode. Bracketing 
can be performed by varying flash level together with shutter speed 
and/or aperture, or by varying flash level alone.
