EOS R5 Focus Bracketing

I have a Canon r5 body; trying to use focus bracketing, but no matter the settings, my camera will only shoot 7 images.  My firmware is not up to date, but that is a separate issue.

Hello, BobArcand!

This is just a guess, but "7" is the max number of shots for exposure bracketing. Double check and make sure you don't have AEB enabled. I've done this myself when in a hurry... I just saw "bracketing" and enabled the wrong one.

No, I have AEB turned off.  Thanks for trying to help.

It is a best practice to keep your camera firmware up-to-date.  Initial releases did contain a few bugs, but I do not think any of them were related to focus bracketing.

The number of shots can be adjusted from 2 - 999.

Agreed, but having issues.  I realize that the camera will only take the number of shots required to focus, no matter how many you have selected.  Would only shoot 7 on the city hall building across the street, so I moved to a gnarly tree with a lot of branches and detail - still only 7 shots.  Also, no matter what shutter I have selected, the camera indicates that it is on electronic, and that electronic does not work with this mode.  Have a session with my technical guy on Wednesday, so hopefully I can at least update my firmware.  Thanks for the help.
