Does anyone fully understand how the exposure bracketing option in Nikon DSLR’s works? Does it take exposure compensation into account? And is there an easy way to “reset” the loop if you get off sync or decide after taking the first exposure that there’s no need to do the other two?
Honestly I wish there was a way to take all three exposures automatically, with only one press of the shutter button, but it doesn’t seem like that is the case.
To reset the order, you just cancel it. On D5500, you probably need to go through the menu. On the more expensive cameras with 2 dials, there is usually a bracket button and you press it and turn the dial to cancel and re-select the bracketing option which is very quick.
To take multiple shots together, you can use interval meter say 1x3 and it will take 1 set of 3 pictures. Hands free too. If you hand hold, use the continuous mode and keep your finger on the shutter button, it will take as many as you keep the button pressed.
On the plus side I found a setting which extends the delay time before it stops responding to the IR remote. That was driving me nuts.
It does take exposure compensation into account on mine.
Also, in the spirit of RTFM, load the manuals onto your mobile device for future access in the field.
