By default when I make a change to shutter speed or aperture, or when I am defending an auto bracket, the intervals between shutter speed or aperture are one-third of a stop. So I'm here to 30th of a second on my shutter speed. One click up goes to 40th of a second, then a 50th, and then to my full-stop change of a 60th. If you're not used to thinking in thirds of stops and you tend to do a lot of manual calculation of exposure, you may want to come in here to Custom Settings menu, into the Metering/exposure category, and go down here to B2, EV steps for exposure control, which defaults to one-third of the stop.
I can change to a half stop or even full-stop changes. I am going to dial in one stop here. Now, when I change shutter speed, I go from a 30th to a 60th, to 125th. This is also great if you are coming from an old-school film background where your camera only had full-stop steps between each exposure. This also makes it much quicker to cycle up from slow exposures or slow shutter speeds to faster shutter speeds or from small apertures to large apertures.
