Exposure bracketing on Canon 6D ?
« on: January 20, 2013, 10:41:22 AM »
I'm getting ready to put an order in for the 6D kit now that the "special deal" is on again.  One of my needs is for HDR processing, but it's not clear to me what the AEB capability is for the 6D and whether it's flexible and broad enough.  Here is a copy of a section of the Canon specs - It appears that AEB is limited to 3 exposures in 1/3 to 1/2 stops (+/- 2.5 stops ??), while the last line mentions number of bracketed shots up to 7 ??  I'd like to over/underexpose up to +/- say, 4 or 5 in seven exposures - can I do that with AEB or must it be manual only ?
And, if by manual they mean user sets the exposure for each shot, why does item (1) limit the stops and increments ??

Exposure Compensation

(1) Manual : ±5 stops in 1/3- or 1/2-stop increments

(2) AEB : ±3 stops in 1/3- or 1/2-stop increments

* Manual exposure compensation and AEB can be combined.

* The AEB shooting sequence will be standard exposure, underexposure and overexposure. With the self-timer, three continuous shots will be taken regardless of the current drive mode.

* The number of bracketed shots: 2, 3, 5, or 7 settable with a Custom Function.

Thanks for any clarifying advice.

Yes, it is because the 6d will run Magic Lantern with unlimited automatic bracketing.
