"RE: Auto bracketing"

Sorry, but three is all you get in a single burst. You may consider changing the base exposure compensation in between a pair of bursts. For a static scene this could give you six shots evenly spaced.

As an example, you could shoot a 3 exposure bracket at 2EV spacing and then dial in a -1EV compensation and shoot the second bracket set. this will yield exposures of -2 0 +2 and -3 -1 +1. Sorted {-3 -2 -1 0 +1 +2} this gives a bias towards exposing to bring out highlight detail. You could also choose base compensations of 0EV and +1EV to bias towards exposing for shadow detail where you would get exposures of {-2 -1 0 +1 +2 +3}.

I have one of my U slots set up for landscape bracketing and can fire off the first set, spin the exposure three clicks and fire off the second set without looking at the controls. Someone else also suggested setting each one of the U positions to accommodate this same sort of scheme by only moving the mode dial one position.
