Bracketing with the K5
Oct 15, 2012

So i'm starting to discover HDR and decided to try it with my K5.  I wanted to take 5 shots automatically with one press of the shutter.  i was able to setup the camera that way and then went to shoot a scene.

I was shooting in Manual mode and when i went to check the exposures of the shots i saw the shutter speed change as i expected but i also saw that the aperture was changing for every shot also so it made the shots unusable.  If i switched to Aperture priority then it worked as i expected.

Is this the normal behavior if you bracket in Manual mode or am i doing something wrong?
