Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB)

In exposure bracketing, three consecutive images are captured at different exposures within your specified range of up to ±3 stops (in 1/3-stop increments) by automatically adjusting the shutter speed or aperture value. This is called AEB.

AEB stands for Auto Exposure Bracketing.

  1. Press the MODE and Drive mode/AF operation button simultaneously (Timer 06sec).

    • AEB setting and 0.0 appear on the top LCD panel.
  2. Set the AEB range.

    (1) AEB amount

    (2) AEB range

    • Turn the Main Dial or Quick Control Dial dial to set the AEB range.
  3. Take the picture.

    Standard exposure

    Decreased exposure

    Increased exposure

    • Three bracketed shots are taken, according to the specified drive mode, in this sequence: Standard exposure, decreased exposure, and increased exposure.
    • AEB will not be automatically canceled. To cancel AEB, follow step 2 to set the AEB amount to “0.0.”


  • During AEB shooting, the AE lock icon in the viewfinder and the AEB setting icon on the top LCD panel blink.
  • If the drive mode is set to Single shooting/Silent single shooting, press the shutter button three times for each shot.

    In High-speed continuous shooting/Continuous shooting/Low-speed continuous shooting/Soft continuous shooting/Soft low speed continuous modes, holding down the shutter button completely captures three images, one after another, before the camera automatically stops shooting. When 10 sec. self-timer or 2 sec. self-timer is set, three consecutive shots are captured after a delay of approx. 10 or 2 sec.

  • You can set AEB in combination with exposure compensation.
  • Ends of the exposure level indicator are displayed as Right end of the exposure level indicator/Top end of the exposure level indicator or Left end of the exposure level indicator/Bottom end of the exposure level indicator when the AEB range exceeds ±3 stops.
  • AEB is not available in flash photography or bulb exposures.
  • AEB will be canceled automatically if you do any of the following: Setting the power switch to Power off or when the flash is fully charged.
