Page 144 of the manual says this (my emphasis)....

ADL Bracketing
In continuous low speed and continuous high speed modes, shooting
will pause after the number of shots specified in the bracketing
program have been taken. Shooting will resume the next time the
shutter-release button is pressed. In self-timer mode, the camera will
take the number of shots selected in Step 2 on page 141 each time the
shutter-release button is pressed, regardless of the option selected for
Custom Setting c3 (Self-timer) > Number of shots (p291)
; the interval
between shots is however controlled by Custom Setting c3 (Self-timer)
> Interval between shots. In other modes, one shot will be taken each
time the shutter-release button is pressed.

I should be able to take 3 ADL bracketed shots with one brief shutter button press (w/o holding the button down) when the release mode is set to Self-timer. And it shouldn't matter what number of shots the self-timer is set at.

Here's my settings:
-ADL Bracketing is set to 3F (that's 3 frames as stated in Step 2 page 141).
-c3 Self-timer is set to: Delay = 2s, Number of shots = 1, Interval between shots = 0.5s
-Release mode is set to Self-timer.

When I press the shutter only 1 shot is taken, then I have to press it again for the 2nd shot, and again for the 3rd.

The only way I can get all 3 shots taken with 1 brief shutter press is to set the Self-timer "Number of shots" to 3, even though the manual says it will take the number of ADL Bracketed shots regardless of the self-timer setting for number of shots.

Am I missing something about ADL Bracketing & Self-timer mode or is it not working as expected?

My camera has the current firmware A:1.00 / B: 1.01

Regards,
Frank
