Bracketing auto cancel

By default, if you have an auto exposure bracketing configuration set up, then when you turn the camera off, that bracketing setup is lost. When I turn it back on, I don't have to worry about any bracketing happening. I think is a really good behavior. It means that the next morning, after a long shoot of auto bracketing, I won't pick it up, and have my images messed of by all of this auto bracketing. However, if you regularly shoot bracketing, and are tired of turning it on or off all the time, you can change that behavior. I'm going to go over here to my custom functions, and on the first page, I have something called Bracketing auto cancel, which by default is set to On.

If I turn it Off, then auto bracketing will stick through power cycles. So again, if you want to be sure that your bracketing settings stick, even through turning the camera off, just change this custom function, and you'll be ready to go.
