Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Auto exposure bracketing, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
Bracketing is the process of shooting the same scene with different exposures to…improve your chances of going home with the shot that's correctly metered.…You might also use bracketing when shooting a scene with lots of dynamic range…so that you go home with at least one properly exposed image of each of the…different bright and dark bits in your scene.…Auto Exposure Bracketing is a camera feature that tells the camera to…automatically alter exposures between shots, so that all you have to do is fire…off a certain number of shots to have a fully bracketed set.…
To activate Auto Exposure Bracketing, I go into the menu.…There is no external button for this.…And if I go over to the second shooting menu, the very first item is Exposure…Compensation/Auto Exposure Bracketing.…I am going to hit SET here.…And the first thing I get is just a normal Exposure Compensation control.…I could dial that in here.…And you may wonder why would go into to here when I've got an external control?…The only reason is that you've got five stops of Exposure Compensation here.…
