"D40"


Tampa, US
          

As I am new to the D40.my question concerns exposure bracketing.What takes the place of exposure bracketing in the D40 or am I missing something? I know that I still fall back on my D50 from time to time because I do miss the convenience and control.Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks Mike DuPonte

It's a kludge but it works. Not great mind you. But it's better than nothing.

Actually, this was the way it was done for many, many years. Nothing 'kludgey' about it. If the proposed capture offered what appeared to be a tricky lighting scenario then we bracketed the shot.

Autobracketing is a nice feature and certainly has its place but let's not lose the ability to evaluate the scene, lighting, and dynamic range before will drop the shutter. Do we really need autobracketing for everything we do? If so, why is that?

Sometimes we need to slow down and think about what we're doing and consider the basic rules of capturing light with our respective machines.
