Exposure Compensation/AEB Settings

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 Dial dial to set the AEB range (1). By using the Left keyRight key keys, you can set the amount of exposure compensation.
    • Press Quick Control/Set button to set it.
    • Once an AEB range is set, it is shown on the screen on the exposure level indicator.
  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. In [Continuous shooting] mode, 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 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 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.
