• When the focus mode is set to l (Single mode), the focus position is 
locked in the first image and is used for subsequent images.
• When you take your finger off the shutter release button during Exposure 
Bracketing, the exposure setting will remain effective for twice the amount of 
the exposure metering timer (default setting is about 20 seconds) (p.104) and 
you can take a picture at the next compensation value. In this case, 
autofocus works for each image. After about twice the amount of the 
exposure metering timer elapses, the camera returns to settings for taking 
the first image.
• When [9. One-Push Bracketing] in the [A Custom Setting 2] menu is set to 
[On], even if the shutter release button is not continuously pressed fully, all 
images are automatically shot with one press of the shutter release button.
• You can combine Exposure Bracketing with the built-in flash or an external 
flash (P-TTL auto only) to change only the flash output continuously. 
However, when using an external flash, holding the shutter release button 
down to take consecutive images may cause the second and third images to 
be taken before the flash is fully charged. Take each image after confirming 
that charging is complete.
• Select a mode other than l, b or c in the [Drive Mode] screen to cancel the 
Exposure Bracketing. The setting is canceled when the camera is turned off if 
[Drive Mode] is set to P (Off) in [Memory] of the [A Rec. Mode 5] menu. (p.274)
• If you use Exposure Bracketing frequently, you can assign it to the |/Y 
button. (p.249)
