D7100 and bracketing
Mar 8, 2014

A question for those with D7100's.

I take a lot of photos in dark museums with my D7000. Using bracketing. -2,0,+2. I'm about to jump to a D7100 and want to get some feedback on the 5 shot bracketing of the D7100.

Is it best to shoot -4,-2,0,+2,+4 or -2,-1,0,+1,+2? I'm more interested in quality than capturing the full dynamic range. But if the -4 to +4 gives me great dynamic range and quality then great. I don't have to use all the dynamic range but it's nice to know it's there if I need it. (In theory the -2 to +2 in 5 1 stop steps should be the same as the D7000 -2 to +2 in 3 2 stop steps. But is it?) Does the jump from 16 meg to 24 meg make a great deal of difference when bracketing?
