Hi, I have a problem that I cannot solve.

Prior to today. I have had my D700 Function Button set as my Aperture Priority Mode bracketing shortcut. Used it almost every shoot.

Today, I got no bracketing.
1st Symptom........just as always, I switch to A-Priority Mode, Press Fn button and choose number of frames for bracketing. No problem except, when I shot, I got the 5 frames I wanted to shoot but not five changes in shutter speed. I got one change. So essentially, I ended up with 4 of the same shots and one with a faster shutter speed.
This happened every time I tried it.

2nd symptom.....Now, the function button does not do anything?

Can you help me problem solve?

Have taken the battery out the in again but no change.
Now have battery out for 1/2 hour and will try again.

Thanks in advance.


Your gonna miss 100% of the shots you never take, so keep shooting
