Bracketing for HDR

Hi People,

Do you know if it is possible to make auto bracketing for 5 images (-2, -1, 0, +1,+2 EV)?

With my Canon 450D, I can make auto bracketing with 3 images. To make a 5 images bracketing i should go manually always? How do you guys do?

Thanks,

Daniel

Hi Daniel, I don't own a Canon but that's one thing I have heard the owner's complain about. It will only do 3 brackets.
The Nikon D300 will do 9 brackets of +/- 1EV..

Thats a shame Jerry!

How do you center your bracketing? Do you use spot metering and measure it from wich part of the scene?

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

I usually take the brightest area of the scene, usually a window, and then drop down one EV. That will be my starting point.
