Is it possible to program a button on the Pen f to out the camera into my favourite bracket mode (or the mode dial)?
I'm unable to set a preset to C3 or C4Yes. Setup the camera as you want it (i.e. incl the bracket mode etc) and then assign it to a Custom dial position. I do this myself. C4 = 5 shot, 5-stop exposure bracket, e-shutter, H burst.
I think therefore that you've got C3 and C4 set to the old "Scene" modes then. Go to cogs menu B (Button/Dial), then go to "Mode Dial Function" then set C3 and C4 to be "C3" "C4" rather than the funny three squares and "SCN" settings.I'm unable to set a preset to C3 or C4
Plus when I set the camera to bracket it only takes 1 shot.
Perfect this is really helpful thank you.I think therefore that you've got C3 and C4 set to the old "Scene" modes then. Go to cogs menu B (Button/Dial), then go to "Mode Dial Function" then set C3 and C4 to be "C3" "C4" rather than the funny three squares and "SCN" settings.
To take all bracket shots in one go, ensure you've got the camera set to one of the H drive modes.
Thank you - this helped but I cannot seem to get the camera to fire AE BKT mode. The camera is set to high speed shots, I have a pro lens and using 3f 0.7ev but it only fires one shot.Hi @Keith1974 and welcome to the forum. I own the Pen-F as well. First, have you downloaded and reviewed the manual?
As for my setup, I personally set the Magnify button (just above Menu button) to be Bracketing. That way I can use C1-C4 to quickly move between more complex setting combos, while leaving Magnify for the occasional bracketing.
Step 1: In the Menu, Shooting Mode 2, Bracketing, turn ON, select type of Bracketing you Want (I did ART for multiple JPG outputs for each photo). When backing out, choose OFF for Bracketing unless you want it on full time.
Step 2: In Custom Menu (Gears), Menu B. Button Dial, Button Function, Magnify or other, use up/down to find BKT. Now every time you hit your custom button, you toggle BKT Off or On and will see an indicator on the EVF or rear screen.
Step 3: Enjoy!
