Continuous Drive + exposure bracket

+ AF-c

Why can these two be set together??

Messed up a bunch of my shots today, heh, because I didn't realize exposure bracketing was on. That's what I get for turning off automatic review to save battery life!

If the correct exposure is important just do exposure bracketing with test shots, adjust accordingly , then shoot in drive mode.

The K-7's exposure system has been so good, especially on Matrix metering, I have rarely worried about exposure bracketing since I started using it....only on occasions, where I switch to Spot metering, and I bracket to check whether it makes sense to adjust for the overall scene .

If you shoot RAW, you have more latitude on the exposure, but its slows down your fps speed.

It actually limits you to 14 or 15 at full 5.2fps. JPG is 40 shots at 5.2fps.
