As long as we agree that there are no stupid questions:
I understand exposure compensation and I understand bracketing, but what is confusing me is the statement, on pg. 135 of the D7100 manual regarding bracketing, that "Modifications to exposure are added to those made with exposure compensation, making it possible to achieve exposure compensation values of more than 5 EV."
Suppose I set EC to +3 and Bracketing to -1-0-+1, what EV values would I get?
Would you please give me an explanation of how this would work, and show an example of it? I would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks.

Continuing with this example, if you were to then take another three frames at EV-1, for values -2 -1 0, you then get six shots totaling -2 -1 0 +2 +3 +4 which can work nicely if you are doing HDR inputs.

Dave & Joseph:
Thanks very much for your very clear and understandable explanations. After digesting what you said, I think I finally have a handle on the process. I don't see why Nikon could not have made it as clear.
