No auto-bracketing on Nikon D40X?

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Nashville Cat, Jan 29, 2008.

  1. I can't find out how to auto-bracket on Nikon D40X? Is this feature
    missing?

    It's not missing, it simply was never on it in the first place. But it takes
    great shots so you won't need it anyway ;-)

    If that's the case, then why did you start a thread here and in rpd about
    multiexposure bracketed shots?

    Because the D300 can and the D40x also lacks multi exposure.
    All together it's a great camera, but it's limited in technical extra's.

    No you said, "so you won't need it anyway." That has nothing to do with the
    capability of the D40x. So this means what? You're a do as I say, not as I
    do sort of person?

    And no: you don't need it. Do you even have a clue what bracketing is? It's
    nothing more then automating the process of under and /or overexposing a few
    pictures. you can easily do that by hand also.

  7. I want to do some HDR photos. This requires bracketed exposures. Guess
    I'll have to do it manually.

    He's right, the D40X does take good photos!

    Bracketed exposures are nothing more than automating changing the
    exposure by a bit on either side of your chosen exposure. It's just as
    easy to change the aperture yourself.

    What do you mean by "crap ones"? What type of problems?

    Not if you want the images taken close together in time, for instance,
    within the same second or two.

    Bracketed exposures are bracketed exposures.

    Thanks Yoda. The point was that you don't need an auto-bracketing button
    on your camera to bracket your exposures.

  16. I want to shoot the moon and clouds at night. I need to prevent movement.

  18. Isn't the moon illuminated with approximately constant light, so that once
    the correct exposure is ascertained, it can be used repeatedly? But
    perhaps you want to try some HDR? There are programs which can align
    images, but I've not used them myself.

    Cheers,
    David

    Exactly the point I was trying to make.
    My D300 does have auto bracketing. But when I wanted to do some experiment,
    I turned out that it doesn't work together with multiple exposure. So if I
    want to fool around within that, I still have to "bracket" it myself. Big
    deal!

  20. I realy don't know how much the clouds will move. I'll just have to
    experiment.

    I have Photoshop CS3. That has auto-alignment.
