I know how to set up my D700 so as to bracket a series of shots for say HDR, however I'm not sure how, or if, I can set the camera so as to do the same bracketing without holding in the "Fn" button while taking the shots... I'd like to take some shots using the camera on a tripod, low light, and use a wireless remote as well so as to not cause vibrations?

Thank you,

Hugh

Once you press the Fn button and dial in the bracketing you don't have to hold the Fn button. When the bracketing is on it remains on until you press the Fn button and dialing the bracketing off. You just need to remember to turn the bracketing off.

I assume you can combine bracketing with mirror up, but I've not tried it. Usually when bracketing on a tripod I use a 10 pin remote and just fire off the series of shots.

Yep...true as told. Love the reassignment feature on the D700. Just remember to dial it back to 0 after you're through taking bracketed shots, or you'll be getting some images the really need adjustment...lol..
