Does that mean a 21 stop dynamic range?

More like 18. Specifically. -9, -6, -3, 0, +3, +6, +9

but in 7 frames not 1.

I guess you could also use EC to expand this range to +/-5 or 28 stops in total, in 9 or 11 frames shot in 2 steps

Step 1: +/- 3 EV and -5 EC 7 AEB yields: -14, -11, -8, -5, -2, +1, +4 and then Step 2: setting the EC to +5 yields the following 7 AEB's   -4, -1, +2, +5, +8, +11, +14

I just realized I have never tried this on my 5D3... so this is just in "theory".  ;D

Jamesy:
Are they like this?
-9, -6, -3, 0, +3, +6, +9???

When I dial it in I can only see up to -8/+8 on each end of the scale.

Yes,

You see 8 because the screen/lcd is not wide enough. You can push it one more stop to +9/-9 though it doe snot show for the extreme 2 brackets, but the middle4 still move to show you you are pushing it beyond the edge... makes sense?

Jamesy:
I just tested it and got -9 through +9 with seven shots. I went from 1/8000s to 1/4s on high speed drive mode. Very cool indeed.

Thanks for all of the suggestions, I may use HDR mode to get three quick bracketed shots or the AEB, depneding on the situation.

K-amps:
Great.

Remember, to get more than 3 AEB, the HDR mode has to be disabled (because it forces a 3 frame limit). For 5 or 7, use the AEB without HDR.
