Nikon D300/D700, setting up hands free bracketing burst
Posted on 23 Apr ’09 by Earl Moore
I searched today for a YouTube video on setting up a Nikon Dxxx camera to do hands free bracketing burst. I’d previously set this up on my D300 but wanted to be sure I didn’t forget any of the settings on my D700.
This function is useful if you want to do multiple images with varying exposures for merging in Photoshop or for HDR. You can auto-bracket up to 9 stops (-4 to +4) with up to 9 individual shots.
Works great when shooting with a tripod.
While the video is made using a Nikon D300 it works just as well on the D700.
