[ALREADY DONE] Auto-Repeat Bracket
« on: February 17, 2013, 10:22:29 PM »
When doing long time exposures with a nd filter to eliminate moving people or other objects from the scenery it's pure luck if it works or if a person or car decides to remain stationary for a while so the shot is ruined. Because of that, I always repeat these brackets a number of times so I don't experience bad surprises when doing postprocessing. Currently I wait for the bracket to end and start it again manually, which doesn't seem quite appropriate with something as useful as ml.

Suggestion: Add a menu item "Shoot -> Advanced Bracket -> Repeat bracket" so I can sit somewhere in the general vicinity and let the camera shoot for 15 Minutes.

Note: This is not the same as repeating each individual frame (2*-1ev, 2*0ev, 2*+1ev) because repeating the whole bracket (-1ev, 0ev, 1ev, -1ev, 0ev, 1ev) makes it more likely that a "good" frame is captured when the disturbing object is gone.
