    Good stuff.. I have a D7000 and am surprised that it can only bracket 3 shots. It seems like it could easily do 5, is there a reason that it can’t other then Nikon not allowing it? Could they update the software to allow this? It’s an awesome camera this just seems like a little thing for it to do.

  2. Joseph Myers says:

    Hey guys, it would be good to incorporate graphics to better understand your techniques. Those who do not speak English were left with some doubts.
    Sorry for my English, greetings from Argentina. Carlos.
