camera taking different exposures on its own

Hi gang,

I am having a problem that I think is linked to some setting but not sure which it could be. My K-5II has recently started to take the right picture and then the next picture is under exposed & the next is over exposed. The trigger also seems quick to register 3 quick photos. I can't figure out what setting that could be. Does anyone know? I'm going crazy.

Thanks for any help,

You have exposure bracketing turned on. Go into your drive setting and set it back to single

I figured it out - sorry for the false alarm - my drive mode was reset to continuous shooting - yikes, head low, embarrassed

Thanks layman - that was it - I thought I checked it through menu but had total blank on accessing drive mode directly
