nikon does use the auto iso for varying exposure- just that it doesn’t allow only the ISO to change in bracketing mode.

No it uses ISO to adjust output image brightness, not exposure. This has been much discussed here in other threads, but see: https://petapixel.com/2020/03/05/iso-has-nothing-to-do-with-exposure-an-explanation-for-beginners/

It makes even less sense to bracket ISO when you have ISO invariance beyond a certain range like with the Zs.

Thanks again,

when I said - it is a minefield- I meant that I have read all that and seen some videos of the Angry photographer( Theoria Apophasis) too 😊 and whether larger sensors gather more light.

I just wanted to know if it can be done in Nikon or not.

Actually, ISO bracketing is a good idea. I can imagine situation, eg sports, where I want to fix my aperture (to control DOF) and my shutter speed, but, my targets are moving through areas with different lighting, eg., the shadow of a stadium on a sunny day. (not quite so good when they are moving, but,perhaps when they have moved)

It's possible that Active D lighting bracketing may have a better result than simple ISO bracketing. The existence of ADL bracketing may be why there is no ISO bracketing.

Can't see Autolighting bracketing easily in the R6 menu.
