Exposure Bracketing on the K-x

Is it possible to do more than 3 exposures (5) at a time without re-adjusting the +/- EV and taking a second set?

Thanks in advanced!

I'm not sure how the K-x works with this function but on the K10D/K20D, bracketing is just one button and a flick of an e-dial away from switching between 3 and 5 exposures. No need for any EV adjustments, it just uses the set exposure difference between bracketed shots.

Have you checked your manual for how this function is activated and switched between 3 and 5 exposures?

I've surfed the manual back and fourth looking for an answer to no avail. Bracketing on the K-x is handled as a "drive-mode". On the four-way dial I hit up and select from say single-shot, multi, bracketing, etc. The e-dial handles the EV adjustments. I'm just thinking it's not possible as it's an entry level camera. Attached are some pictures for reference. (Sorry for the focus, taken on my iPhone using a macro lens).

Reduce your EV level for exposure bracketing. You've got it at 3EV steps, which is far too much - no room for 5 exposures (at that setting the extreme ends would have to be +6 and -6 EV steps!)

Go to +/- 1EV step and see the 5 exposures come up as -2, -1, 0, +1 and +2 EV.

I just had it there for the picture. Even down to -1, +1 or -2, +2 it stays at three.

Where is +/- EV steps? The only thing in the settings under the menu are for changing the order the images are taken, and the stepping (1/3 or 1/2).

It's there on the screen above - but you've already figured that out by trying the different values.

Just had a look at the K-x specs - limited to 3 exposures only in bracketing mode. Sorry for misleading you

That's what I thought. Thanks Ash. Wonder if I'll be able to re-adjust the EV steps without causing enough wiggle on the tripod to move the image. Testing will tell!
