Auto Bracket Intervals for KM/2000

I love to experiment with different techniques, and one of my favorite is HDR/Tonemapping (unsure of the correct term?)
I have used the autobracket setting of the KM/k2000 quite a few times, and then experimented with Photoshop Elements into FDR tools basic for the HDR/Tonemapping work.
My question is, am I missing where the only autobracket settings are .5 or .3? I would like to go to 1 or 2 if possible, but it looks like I have to change manually...
Any insite would be great thanks.

My autobracketing is set to 2 EV apart. so I shoot at 0, -2, and +2. I use the K-m/K2000 too.

Intervals

LeDave, do you recall where those settings are done? I just checked thru the manual again and don't see where I can make the change.
Thanks.

When you select autobracketing, but before you confirm it with OK, you can use the wheel to change the value. 2EV is the maximum.

edit: If you still have the "?" button assigned to Help function, you can press it on pretty much any screen and it will explain all the possible settings.

Solved

Thanks guys,
I used the Av button + dial as you suggested, works like a charm!
I'm so happy....

The menu item for EV steps allows for either 1/3 or 1/2 stop *increments*....once you turn on auto-bracketing, you should be able to use the rear dial to set intervals of up to 2 EV in either 1/3 or 1/2 stop increments.

Regars,
Terry
