Can a Nikon D7000 owner please help?
I am interested in purchasing and need the bracketing feature for HDR.
So, if I set the camera up on Aperture Priority for 3 shots at -2, 0, +2EV, then press the shutter, what happens? Does it go click, click, click - all done? If so, how long does this 3 shot performance take? Is it instantaneous?
Thank you in advance!

You need to either keep the trigger pressed until it takes the number of frames you've chosen (best set to fast continuous burst) or you can fire each frame individually. Obviously a tripod would be needed.

I would say recommended, depending on how stable a person is, and with overlaying for HDR the programs usually know to correct for small movements by the user

You don't have to hold the shutter button down for the three exposures. I usually use a tripod (you don't have to). Do not use aperture priority either. I always just go to manual, set the aperture where I want it depending on depth of field needed, or effects like starbursts on lights, etc. Adjust the shutter speed until you get to zero on your exposure meter. Then, set the camera to bracket. Since this will likely result in some long shutter speeds, I like to set the camera on timer. Hold the shutter button halfway down to focus, press it the rest of the way down, back away from the camera and let it do the work. If there is enough light, the three exposures won't take very long but if there is low light, the overexposed image can take quite a while (like 30 seconds or more). After all three exposures are done, the camera will show all three to you automatically. Done.
Thanks,
Jeff

Thanks Jeff for your reply, very much appreciated! I really wasn't looking for a lecture on HDR, but I knew it would happen.
Anyway, I have decided to order a D7100, should be in my grubby hands by the end of the month, can't wait!

Cheers
Colin
