Question about bracketing/HDR k-5ii

Hey, I am about to jump ship from my Canon to a K-5iis and I have a quick question. When doing bracketing at say 3 or 5 shots, does it pause in between each click for a second or two? Nikon and Sony does, and I prefer Canon where they are taken in quick succession. I do some portrait type shots in HDR so the delay is less than desirable. Let me know how it works on the K-5ii if you can, thanks.

Can't comment on the K-5II but I have the K-5 and they have the same CPU so I expect little change. The shots are taken in very quick succession. Also you can set it to one push bracketing, mean you push and release the shutter button and it takes the required number of shots. You will be happy with it I expect.

Just turn all in camera processing corrections off, that slows down file saving. I have everything turned off and post process.

That is exactly what i want. Set the amount of shots, set a 2 second delay and let the camera do the bracketing right in a row without delay. Thanks for the quick reply!

Yup- you can have the camera shoot all 3/5 at max framerate automatically, or you can shoot them manually by pressing the shutter button each time. This is configured by the "one-push bracketing" custom function.
