Exposure Compensation/AEB Setting

You can capture three images at different shutter speeds, aperture values, and ISO speeds, as adjusted by the camera. This is called AEB.

AEB stands for Auto Exposure Bracketing.

  1. Select [Shooting: Expo.comp./AEB].

  2. Set the AEB range.

    • Turn the Main dial dial to set the AEB range (1). Press the Left key Right key keys to set the exposure compensation level.
    • Press SET to set it.
    • When you press the shutter button halfway, the AEB range will be displayed in the viewfinder.
  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 turn off the AEB range display.


  • Exposure compensation in AEB may be less effective with [Shooting: Auto Lighting Optimizer] () set to an option other than [Disable].


  • If the drive mode is set to [Single shooting], press the shutter button three times for each shot. When [High-speed continuous shooting] or [Continuous shooting] is set and you hold down the shutter button completely, the three bracketed shots will be taken consecutively and the camera will automatically stop shooting. When [10 sec. self-timer] or [2 sec. self-timer] is set, three consecutive shots are captured after a delay of 10 or 2 sec. When set to [Self-timer: Continuous], three times the specified number of shots are taken in continuous shooting.

  • You can set AEB in combination with exposure compensation.
  • AEB is not available with flash, Multi Shot Noise Reduction, Creative filter, or bulb shooting.
  • AEB is canceled automatically if the power switch is set to Power off or when the flash is fully charged.
