    D80 Autobracketing

    Hey everyone! Here's the problem:

    I know how to bracket on my camera, I know about the BKT button and choosing the different modes of bracketing. My beef is with the lack (I think) of an option for the camera to take the three shots automatically (neutral, under and over), instead of me pushing the shutter button after each shot.

    Am I wrong? Is there such option? I know the D200 can take the shots automatically, but my manual hasn't been of much help.

    Thanks!

    this has been raised before; you must depress the shutter 3 times for 3 shot bracketing. 4 times for 4 shot brackets etc. i thought that was the case with the d200 aswell ??

    herc is right.

    But if you are shooting from a tripod, the best solution is probably the ML-L3 - for $15 or so it is a tremendous tool for this type of shooting.

    The ML-L3, will not work with the D200 or D300. For those cameras, you need one of the more expensive options.

    erich... that is true, but the op has a D80 and was just merely contrasting what he had heard about a D200 - at least that is how I read it.

    I tried it and it worked: Continuous shooting mode and keeping the shutter button down.

    I'm sorry if this was raised before. I did a search for D80 and bracketing and didn't find what I was looking for.

    I had considered the RC before, but a friend has it and I borrow it sometimes, so I don't see a need to buy it.

    Thanks everyone!
