Fuji Auto Focus Bracketing, suggested workflow

First introduced with X-T4, Fuji has added Auto mode to GFX 100 focus bracketing. The UI is a bit confusing, and there are several ways how to proceed. AFAIK, the following is the simplest. It applies both to X-T4 and GFX 100.

After selecting Focus Bracketing Auto mode, EVF/LCD shows the view through the lens with overlaid bracketing info. The bracketing info disappears after a short while (to help with framing) but can be shown again by pressing arrow buttons (X-T4) or Q/Fn4 buttons (GFX100). Other buttons may also trigger the bracketing info overlay.

Possible steps to follow:

1) focus on the closest point (using MF or AF)

2) press OK button to save it as focus point A

3) focus on the furthest point (shown as point B in the overlaid display)

4) press the shutter to start the sequence

Note 1: As Greg pointed it out, there is no need to save the B point by pressing the DISP/BACK button.

Note 2: Since the live view is active during focus bracketing, in many situations (e.g., landscape), you can handheld the camera during focus bracketing. Helicon Focus is (always?) able to align slight movements.
