Can someone with a 5d mk 111, tell me the max auto bracketing the camera will do.

Copying and pasting from before:

It takes three exposure by default - you have to change the custom function for the number of bracketed shots to change this. It's page 316 of the manual.

It looks just like the AEB on the 1dMkiii - you can choose from 2, 3, 5 or 7 exposures and then also set the order of 0,-,+.

So the way it works is:

1) You can set the HDR ev 'value' up to 3 in either 1/3 increments or 1/2 increments.

2) You can then set the HDR to do either 2, 3, 5 or 7 shots.


If you set the HDR value to 1 and 1/3 and then set the HDR to 5 shots it would do them at:
-2 and 2/3
-1 and 1/3
1 and 1/3
2 and 2/3

If you set the value to 3 and then shots to 7 it would do: -9, -6, -3, 0, 3, 6, 9

If you set the HDR value to be 2.5 and then set the HDR to take 2 shots, it would one shot at -2.5ev and one at 0 ev.

At least that's how it works on the 1DMKiii which has the same wording for the HDR settings.
