    Ok, I know, there is a ton of HDR on the forum already but...I have a question of a different nature.

    HDR for Canon, covered, HDR for Nikkon, covered (if I'm not mistaken) but now - HDR for Sony?
    Currently using an A700 and I cannot figure out how to get the camera to do three shots with 3 different exposure levels (bracketing).

    Any Sony users out there that might know how this is done?

    And yes, I have read the manual - for anyone that was wondering ;)

    Read the manual again. Looking specifically at the functionality of the "Drive" button on the top of the camera ... page 55 ;). Or just take that hint and see what the drive button brings up :)

    /EDIT: Btw manuals in paper form suck. PDFs on the other hand are text searchable. http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSLRA700.pdf

    why bracket just alter shutter speed a click either side of the correct exposure. H

    ... Because bracketing makes it take 0.5 seconds, rather than the 2-3 seconds it takes to take picture adjust, take picture, adjust, take picture.

    If you're steady enough you can bracket without even a tripod and require no lining up in photoshop.
