    I decided to have a go at the HDR malarky and for the first time had a play with the AEB setting. From the manual I was expecting to click the shutter once and get three exposure whereas I have to click three times and get +/-0 on the first click then +2 then -2. I am shooting in both raw and jpeg together so get a total of six shots for my three clicks of the shutter.
    Just wondered if this is correct?

    Thanks guys for your super quick responses. Now I need a decent sunset to practice on. Trouble is if, and it's a big if, I get the hang of HDR I wonder if my expensive filter system is going to become redundant lol

    On my camera (canon EOS 400D) I set the AEB bracketing, also set the timer function so as to prevent camera shake and it take's all three shots one after the other so I get 3 shots for my one click.

    If you put the camera on self-timer then you can just press the shutter button the once and it'll rattle the three AEB exposures off by itself.

    Edit: Darn it .... too slow Wink

    As well as using the timer I cover the eye piece, just hang the lens cap on the rubber cup to prevent light entering and upsetting the exposure. Also use manual focus to prevent the camera refocusing and causing a blurry image.

    Self timer, there's another feature I haven't tried. I have an infra red remote built into the grip but I will certainly give it a go and the tips about the eye piece and manual focus.
    Thanks
