"Anybody use auto-bracketing on a D5000?"


San Diego, US
          

How do you like it (the auto-bracketing)? From what I've read it seems somewhat limited, but I've never used an auto-bracketing camera, so I don't know. I'm thinking of upgrading (D40) and auto-bracketing is one of the features I want.

It took me a few tries to get it to work. Set up isn't described as well as it could be in the manual. BUT, once u understand it it works very well.

No matter how slow the film, Spirit always stands still long enough for the photographer It has chosen.

The D5000 has three auto-bracket modes.
1) Auto Exposure Bracketing (most people are familiar with this one)
2) White Balance Bracketing
3) Active D-lighting Bracketing

Not to difficult to figure what each does if you understand the concept of bracketing.

They all seem to work pretty good on my D5000.

bracketing on the d5000 is pretty easy to turn on and off. you can set the function button to take you directly to the setting or just use the
"I" button and scroll down.

I use it all the time and really like it. tricky part is setting how much bracketing you want but i have found the more contrasty the subject the more latitude you need to give.

I shoot stage productions and have found 2/3 stop to be about right. Also, bracketing has created shots I would have never taken. Cropping comes in handy then.

Some issues with bracketing--
Continuous shooting is limited to 3 shots. Thats so you always know where you are in the cycle -- and you should always shoot all 3.

You have 3 times as many shots to rummage through later. I just went to a play and had over 400 to deal with.

You have 3 times the noise. Not loudness but length.
