Bracketing in Maxxum 5D

Hey arnelsartwor,
To set both exposure and flash bracketing you need to press the drive mode button, and then use the up/down arrows to select bracketing and then use the right/left arrows to highlight the drive mode option and then press the center button to select the desired drive mode. These instructions are on page 50 of your user manual. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Camera freezes after taking picture

Shooting in the dark here, but the basic things you should try before all else is another mem card, and new compatible batteries. sounds more like a card problem though. hope it works out
