K200d auto bracket Q

When I set my K200d to auto bracket drive mode, I was expecting to hear 3 photos to be shot, but the camera takes only one. Does anyone know what I am missing in order to be able to shoot the over and under exposed photos when auto bracket is selected?

You need to hold the shutter release down and keep it held down until you have taken all three shots - or press it three times. If you've been pressig once and then releasing as with most dslrs you will only take the first, unbracketed exposure.

According to the manual (pp 124-6) it should take 3 consecutive photos - if I remember correctly (I had a K200D) you have to hold the shutter button down for the entire 3 shot sequence. If you only take one photo, then the next 2 shots will be bracketed (assuming you take them fairly quickly).

If you don't have a manual, you can download one here:

Good luck.
