I can't figure out how to use bracketing?

Hi,

I'm sure I must be missing something obvious but I've just tried the 638 firmware on my IXUS 800IS and with bracketing enabled and continuous shooting mode enabled it still didn't bracket, whether I just took one shot at a time or held down the button.

Am I simply missing something? I couldn't find any documentation on how to actually take bracketed shots, just explanations of all the configuration options and that it works in continuous shooting mode.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Ok, I see what you mean. So I can only take pictures in the regular mode. But how will I be able to use features such as bracketing?
Enter the <Alt> with PRINT, enter CHDK menu with MENU, set up wat you want...


-> set "TV bracketing value" to [2 Ev], "Brackting type" to [+/-], exit Alt mode, use the custom timer (set up to 1s delay, 3 shots)

Thank you, that was helpful and I managed to get it to work. Even created my first HDR image (I still need a lot of practice).

This page was also helpful in expanding my understanding of how things work:
