Canon 5DM3 - Bracketing shots not firing

Hello,

I am trying to fire my camera Canon 5DM3 to shoot 3 bracket shots (-2, 0, +2). 

 

I have my Expo.comp./AEB set to -2, 0, +2), HDR is disabled, and number of bracketed shots is set to 3. When I fire the camera only one image is shot. I'm not sure if there's another setting on my camera that is preventing the 3 shots to fire.

 

I am able to shoot 3 exposure by enabling the HDR mode. 

 

Please help!

 

Thanks,

Angie

This is all layed out clearly in the manual.

If you are in single shot mode *you* have to press the shutter 3 times. If you are in continuous mode and hold the button down, it will take the three shots and stop.

Hello Kvbarkley,

I did read the manual many times, googled searched, etc. before writing here, so I'm sorry if this was a basic question for you.

 

Although my camera is in continuous mode it won't fire 3 times. However, when I put it into 10 second or 2 second timer it fires 3 times. Nonetheless, I am able to fire the bracket shots as I wanted with the timer. Thanks for your reply.

Did you hold the button down in continuous mode?
