    I'm at work this weekend but being that it looks like a slow few days here I plan to finally set up the two user program settings on my D7100. After going through the somewhat vague manual a few times I'm still not clear on a few things.

    If I have U1 set up for in camera HDR do I still need to set the release dial to CL or CH before shooting?

    If I have U2 set up for exposure bracketing (5 exposures) do I still need to set the release dial to CL or CH before shooting?

    Depends on if you're shooting with a tripod or not.
    When I bracket for HDR on a tripod, I don't bother changing to Continuous mode. But if I handhold the camera, I shoot CH.

    I have my U1 set up for my exposure bracketing, and I use the Self Timer.. 10 second count down, eliminates camera shake, and will fire off all the pictures in succession.
