    Re: AEB shooting
    Goal: To take the selected # of shots with one-push of the shutter

    Whether using Pixel Pro or the camera shutter I get the following results:

    1) Pixel Pro: camera drive and Pixel mode set to continuous: the shutter must be held down to complete the number of shots

    2) Pixel Pro: camera drive set to Self timer 2/10 sec/remote, Pixel mode set to continuous: push the shutter only once and number of shots are completed albeit with a delay

    3) Camera: drive set to continuous: the shutter must be held down to complete the number of shots

    4) Camera: drive set to Self timer 2/10 sec/remote: push the shutter only once and number of shots are completed albeit with a delay

    Is there a way to push the shutter only once without the 2/10 sec delay? I suppose holding down the shutter until completed is not that bad. Thanks in advance for your help.

    I can't imagine this is really possible unless you have a camera without a mechanical shutter. In fact many times the camera is bracketing using the shutter speed as the adjusted factor in the bracketed exposure.

    Breaking down a few things mentioned above, those options operate as they do regardless of AEB.
    • Single shot verses continuous: Continuous allows shutter to rapid fire as long as the shutter is held, you can burn through multiple AEB cycles, it is a shutter button behavior not an AEB behavior.
    • 2/10 Second Timer/Remote: this will add the time to the shutter click to allow vibration for long exposures to not be a factor if you click on the camera or for the person to for example get in the frame on a 10 sec, regardless if camera is used or remote shutter this is all about simply adding a small buffer of time before the shot is taken, I would not have thought to use this with AEB, but it seems it want to complete the AEB cycle using that delay.
    I should mention that AEB has been around since film days and it is about setting a predetermined level of stops of light difference for under and over exposure, not about automating the shutter (and in film days film advance).
