Changing the Exposure Automatically when Shooting
Auto Bracketing is a function for continuously shooting images with 
the exposure automatically adjusted for underexposure and 
overexposure. Each time the shutter release button is pressed, 2, 3 
or 5 shots are taken. Refer to “Shooting while the Exposure is 
Automatically Changed (Exposure Bracketing)” (p.138).
