Does any m43 camera supports AE bracketing in 2EV steps?

As I said earlier, from E-PL5/E-PM2 onwards, the Oly bodies have HDR Bracket added to their Shooting Menu. The old AE Bracket is still there.

The old AE bracket needs a shutter button press for each frame.

The new HDR bracket does the whole bracket from one shutter press. Can be RAW or RAW+jpeg or jpeg only, the usual image choices.

Neither version has auto combining in the camera, it all needs to be done in post process.

A bit over half way down my E-PLx chart page you see the bracketing differences.

Here's quick shot of my E-PL5 screen in Shooting Menu 2 - Bracketing - HDR Bracket.

The E-P5 of course has this new feature. In my case I played with it a few times but then found I always got what I needed from the 1 RAW so haven't needed to use the HDR bracket since those early experiments. The 16MP sensor in the Olys is quite good at getting detail out of the shadows.

I need HDR support for high contrast shots and usually +/-1 isn't enough to utilize raw format to maximum.

Great work Guy, thanks, I'm now very convinced that I can walk into shop eyes closed and buy PL5. That's to replace my Oly PL3. But I have also Pana G3 - what about Panasonic G5 and G6?

fotophool in this thread stated, that 2EV step AE bracketing is supported on these models. while I can't find in the web a single review mentioning something above 1 EV steps and either Panasonic site and manual doesn't seem to be aware of it.

Perhaps a firmware upadate is needed?
