Bracketing
Bracketing automatically varies exposure, flash level, Active D-Lighting (ADL), or 
white balance slightly with each shot, “bracketing” the current value. Choose in 
situations in which it is difficult to set exposure, flash level (i-TTL and, where 
supported, auto aperture flash control modes only; see pages 146, 236, and 294), 
white balance, or Active D-Lighting and there is not time to check results and adjust 
settings with each shot, or to experiment with different settings for the same subject.
