I always take 3 shot brackets. I think my Nikon D7100 it actually rusted onto the setting!!!!

But aren't you then wearing out your camera much faster, at least in terms of expected shutter count?

Yeah maybe. But it could out live me!! I think I have about 60000+ clicks on the camera already. If it throws in the towel then I will have a good excuse for a new camera. Mirrorless I think!

I traveled a lot before covid. Lots of overseas trips. The camera took a bit of a beating while traveling. Including one fall of about 2 metres. So I guess shutter count doesn't worry me.

The lifespan of your camera will probably be much less than 50% of that you could expect if you bracket only when you really, really need to.

Card storage is cheap and the D7100 has two slots and throwing away shots you don't need is better than wishing you had the shot later. It also depends on what you are shooting. I like museums. Both indoor and outdoor ones. Light if often an issue.

But since I started taking brackets software has become much better at handling the dynamic range.

I thought I made a mistake once. But I was wrong!
