I was shooting at night yesterday and wanted to set my E-M1 Mark II for exposure bracketing. I followed all of the steps and saw BKT on my screen. I thought I should end up with a series of photos at different exposures, but only got one shot each time. Was it a composite of different exposures, or did I do something wrong? My lens was Olympus 12-40mm Pro.

You needed to keep pressing the shutter release. If 3 shot bracketing, then press it three times.

Switch to continuous drive mode. I recommend using the electronic shutter in high speed if you want to quickly take shots at 60fps when you don't have to worry about distortion. The camera will automatically stop firing off the shutter once it completes the bracket.

Thank you. I will try that.

is it stacking in-body?

I use Panny so don't know your Oly system, but that's one thing to check on

If it was set for bracketing then it simply takes the shots.
(The camera can be set for HDR, when it stacks, and it also does focus stacking.)
