    Exposure bracketing takes multiple images at different exposure levels.

The camera will take a few photos with different exposures, and then you can choose the best one.

    Next is "Exposure range"
    .
    The default for this is minus one exposure to plus one exposure ("-1EV to +1EV"). There are also options for "-2EV to +2EV" and "-3EV to +3EV". What this simply means is more extremes. With a higher exposure, there will be a greater change in the photo.
