Cant seem to figure this out. I have played with the in camera HDR, but what I want to do now is get a 3 shot bracket and use something like photomatix to create an HDR final shot.

I see how to set the bracket increments, but it appears I have to manually press the shutter for each shot. Is there a way to have the camera take 3 bracketed shots automatically? I want to avoid camera shake.

Thanks for any help.

Usually if you set the drive mode to "continuous" it will take a short burst of three frames.

Thanks, I'll try that.
Dont have the camera in front of me, but am I correct in assuming you couldnt use continuous and the delayed shutter release at the same time? If so I guess a remote trigger is on my Christmas list :D

Got it working. Just need to put it into self timer and it takes the 3 shot group.

Now the hard part...taking a nice HDR for the Dec assignment.
