LX7 Aperture bracket and self timer at the same time?
Sep 28, 2012

I recently got an LX7 (previously owned an LX5) and I'm enjoying the fast lens a this compact camera a lot - the two main reasons I chose this model. But I've run into a problem with the controls I can't believe is intentional. The lower button under the center "Set" button offers the choice of "Single", "Burst", "Auto Bracket", or "Self Timer". It appears that you get to choose only one of these. I often Auto Bracket to increase the dynamic range and combine the photos in post. It's important that the camera be steady for the three shots so on the LX5 I would typically use a tripod and the 2s self timer to avoid adding trigger jitter from my finger. On the LX7 I have not been able to do this.

Has any one else run into this or have a work-around?
