Yes. Select bracketing mode for the drive mode. Press the "down" button, then the "right" or "left' button to select the Bracketing/Timer sub-mode. With the wheels, set the bracketing values (# shots, EV spread) that you want. Now press INFO to get Parameter Adjust. Select either "12-second timer" or "2-second timer", press OK. Press OK to finalize your bracketing.

Note that selecting the 12-second timer causes the single 12 second delay BEFORE any shots are made, followed by all bracketing shots with NO delay between, and the mirror flaps up and down. Selecting the 2-second delay causes a 2 second delay before EACH shot, with the mirror going up at the beginning of each delay, reducing shake for each shot, and down after each shot.
