Exposure Bracketing

Hi All,

Just setting up my new K3 as I want it. I have inadvertently put in exposure bracketing and now want to delete it.
How do I do this as I have tried as per the manual on page 49 and it does not appear to work.
Thanks in advance,

Good Morning,

I do not have a K3, but from the manual it appears that it operates just like my K5 (but with more options to select from) and I use bracketing all the time.
  1. Press the ^ key from the 4 way controller (item #25 from page 8) - this will bring up a menu at the top of the monitor with a number of selection icons. The camera is currently in bracketing mode, so the bracketing mode icon will be selected/highlighted.
  2. To move to another mode - lets say single frame shooting (which would be the first icon on the line of icons on the screen). Use the < or > to move the "selected icon" or "highlighting" so that the first icon - the single frame shooting icon is selected or highlighted.
  3. Then press the OK button to select the single frame shooting icon.
  4. You are now in single frame shooting mode
hope that helps....
PS - its nice to come across another Gordon on the forum!

Check if you have the 4-way controller set to move the AF points
