CD400 Exposure Bracketing BUG!!!

I am asking anyone with a CD400 to please help me determine if I have a defective camera. Possibly this is a problem with all of them too. When I shoot in manual mode with exposure bracketing ON here is what I get. (I didn't check this in Auto mode, but it should work no matter what.) The first set of three are ok. -3, 0, +3 The second set is ok too. -3, 0, +3 The third set is NOT ok. -3, 0, 0 ........ It doesn't change from 0 EV. The next sets after that are also -3, 0, 0. .....Still not changing from 0 EV. Note: I am not able to check at the moment, but either the exposure doesn't do -3 or it doesn't do +3, In any case, the third or fourth set of bracketed shots gets stuck at zero EV. Would someone check with their camera to see if that is the same? Thank You. David Clark

What is the aperture and shutter speed when you take the bracketed exposure? The reason I ask is if the camera is at it's limit in shutter speed or aperture you could get a no change exposure.

Bracketing with a Nikon L105

Well, in a word, no. However the camera does have exposure compensation (multi function button +/- and adjust the exposure compensation up or down) but the camera is not "smart" enough to give you the + and - effects of auto bracketing found on the more advanced Nikon cameras...I believe the D5100 is the least expensive in the Nikon lineup with feature. Good luck.

Incorrect exposure

It sounds like you've got exposure bracketing turned on. Hold down the Fn button and turn the main command dial to change the number of shots to 0.
Full details are in the "Bracketing" subsection of the "Exposure" section of the manual (page 130 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.

My continuous shoot stops after only 4 frames. Why? Something must have been changed on my camera, because, it used to take as many frames as I could hold down the button

Did you accidentaly turn on the bracketing feature of the camera? It sound like you did and now it takes only 4 images bracketed (on exposure, white balance or so on). Change the bracketing setting to OFF and it should work fine.

If this is not the case, I hope to hear from you soon to try solve this problem. Please also include the make and model of your camera.

Bracketing won't work

Did you take the pictures in automatic mode or are you taking them in Program or Manual mode? Try switching modes. it sounds like you are looking to get different exposures for a given scene, so I'm guessing you are looking to take better photographs. Let me know about your other shooting variables that are set on the camera and I'll let you know.

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!

Sincerely,
Allan

Sequential shooting modes

There are four sequential modes: Sequential shooting, High-speed Sequential shooting, AF Sequential shooting and Auto Bracketing. Sequential shooting modes can be selected from the CAMERA menu: Sequential shooting: A maximum of 11 frames can be shot sequentially at approximately 1.7 fps in HQ mode. Focus, Brightness (exposure) and White Balance are locked at the first frame. High-speed Sequential shooting: A maximum of 4 frames can be shot sequentially at approximately 3.3 fps. Focus, Brightness (exposure) and White Balance are locked at the first frame. AF Sequential shooting: Focus is individually locked for each frame. The AF Sequential shooting speed is slower than for normal sequential shooting. Auto Bracketing: When Auto bracketing is set, exposure is changed automatically for each frame when you start shooting. The exposure differential can be selected in the menus. Focus and white balance are locked at the first frame.

Auto bracketing

I'm not familiar with your camera but I know on the cameras I've used in the past that you have to keep the button pressed until all shots have been taken. I believe that some cameras can be set up to take each bracketed exposure each time you press the shutter button but I haven't come across this as yet.
