Great spreadsheet.

I have just moved from a Sony A100 to the D200, so this was a great timesaver.

I really like doing landscape and architectural HDRI shots, which is why I bought the camera.

There appear to be 3 ways to do it. The simplest is to select your Landscape Menu C's (Shooting and Custom), with a couple of changes:

Shooting Menu:

Image Quality: NEF - there is no need to waste space on the jpeg, as you will need to do the HDR merge on RAW files (or at least you ought to).

Custom Settings (some of these are my preference and I could be wrong in making these choices) Menu:

d4 Shooting Speed 4fps
AND either:
e8 Auto Bracket Selection - Preset Value Select (allows yo to switch bracketing on or off with the command dial)
OR
f4 FUNC button to Bracketing burst

I check the composition hand held. If it looks OK, I mount it on the tripod, focus on the subject (often off center). Of course, as there is no AF Lock Hold function (darn) - I have to switch off AF after it is focused. Then compose and lock the camera down.

I have my D200 set to 7 exposures at 1EV (with the above settings, esp e8, hold BKT down and rotate the sub-command dial to set these). The camera set to Aperture Priority, ISO 100, and usually F16. If the camera auto exposure is spot on, I can usually dispose of the first and last shot and keep five. However, more often than not the camera gets the 'Master' shot wrong by up to 1EV, so I have the first and last shots as safeties.

Method 1: Select drive mode. Hold the FUNC button down and press and hold the shutter the shutter. Rapid fire exposure bracket ensues.

Method 2: With or without a remote, you do much as above, but use the BKT and Command Dial to switch on Bracketing and then use the remote in drive mode. It will pause after the series has been taken. You don't need to asign the FUNC button (f4) this way.

Method 3: You can also use the Interval Timer to trigger the series if the camera is set to bracketing mode as described above in method 2. The Interval timer ignores the settings for number of shots and interval, instead it uses the number of bracket shots and fires them off as quickly as it can, stopping after it has fired off a sequence. The same settings as for the remote, but you must set the Interval Timer and set it off. This option is beter than 1 or 2 if you don't have a remote because you don't touch the camera whilst it is firing.

Those seem to be the options. Unless you know better
