Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB)
Using the exposure compensation setting, you can capture images at different exposure levels, and then select the optimal image later as shown in the example below. This is called AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketing) shooting.
You can set your camera so that the shutter speed and aperture value are changed automatically to capture three successive shots with exposure bracketing of ±2-stops in 1/3-stop increments.
For details on exposure compensation, please refer to the Related Information section.
