Yes, OK, A priority makes sense to me.

But I am having difficulty understanding the change made in between the two sets of three exposures. I would think that if you are in anything but manual, and you spin the dial three clicks in between both sets of 3 bracketed exposures, wouldn't the three sets be identical in terms of variations around the correct exposure?

I have zero experience with bracketing... I would think that one would want to vary shutter and/or ISO and leave aperture unchanged during bracketing. This would maintain consistent depth of field (and perhaps focal length too as that varies a bit with aperture).

Time for me to learn this and give it a try!

Cheers,
Peter
