I've been experimenting with the interval timer and save to the U1 setting.
I found following method searching the net.
You can do a little bracketing trickery using the interval timer but it's definatley a hack. I can't say I'd use it often, but kind of fun playing with it. Here's an example: 1. Go to E5 and set it to AE only. 2. Set E6 for the order you want. 3. Go to B2 and set to 1/2 step. 4. Press the BKT button and set it to 3 frames and 2 EV. 5. Press the Exposure Compensation button and set to 0 EV 6. Under Shooting Menu go to Interval Timer Choose NOW click right Interval set to 5sec click right Number of shots choose 002 X 3 = 6 then click right Choose ON and click OK
The timer will start and fire the first 3 shots then pause for the remainder of the first interval. During the pause press the Exposure Compensation button and turn the rear dial two clicks right. The camera will shoot the next 3 shots when the interval expires. This example would give you 6 bracketed shots at -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, and +3. You can play with the settings to get different combinations. Kind of a stupid way I know but just playing.
I saved the following settings to U1. OK, I set the time interval to 15 sec as this will be used for night shots with longer shutter speeds. The above works, but changing the exposure compensation during the pause doesn't do anything, all 6 frames look exactly the same. I even went +5 with exposure compensation, still no change. What am I doing wrong? Could it be that saving this to U1 is the problem?
BTW, I also changed setting D-11 to 1sec delay MLU

Here's what I've found. Exposure compensation doesn't work in manual or shutter mode. I've had it work in program and aperture priority mode, but HDR for night shots, I prefer manual mode. Using the U1 and U2 settings along with the self timer, 3 shot bracketing and setting D-11 MLU 1 sec. I need more that 3 exposures for HDR night shots. This is going to be used for stitching along with HDR for up to 150 shots, so you can see why I want to automate the HDR part.
