    I know the Contax G1 and G2 can bracket exposures, as can the Leica R8 with a motor drive...any others, please?

    Minolta Maxxum... anything after the 8000i with cards, and anything after the si series without cards, and some xi. It's actually quite common for most manufactures after the early/mid 90s

    Does it have to be RF? EOS 3 will, and I presume the 1 (n/V) will as well, don't know about the 5 or lower.

    EOS 1, 1N, 1V, 1VHS, 3, 50...others still, very numerous.
    EOS 5 has no auto-bracketing feature but it's not a task to set this manually, as you would do with a camera with no on-board meter.

    Many of the newest film canon Rebels bracket. For example the Canon Rebel Ti (the 300V). Super cheap cameras to pick up.

    Contax 167MT, and likely a few other Contax models -- I'd bet money the RTS III brackets.

    Yeap, any 35mm camera would do bracketing. But I suspect the OP wants one that does auto-exposure bracketing (AEB).

    To the OP,
    Here is a start: Nikon SLRs.
    Unless someone knows of an accessory for the F3, the first Nikon to be able to do AEB was the F801 with the MF-21 back. The following F4 also needed a MF-23 back to do AEB.
    The first with a body integrated function was the F601.
    The successor to the F801, the F90 also needed a MF-26 back for the AEB.
    From the F70 onwards, the AEB is again integrated in the body. So, the F5, F100, F80, F75, F65, F55 and F6 all have AEB. Some are more flexible than others, but all work well.

    On a personal note, the bodies that require a multi-function back are normally not the easiest to work with.

    From the 7000i as well.

    I must have had a different EOS 5 as mine had AEB! It is activated by a multi-function button on the back. The last button on a row of 4, if I remember well.
    Here is the manual: http://www.cameramanuals.org/canon_pdf/canon_eos_5.pdf

    Having only 2 or 3 cameras with built in meters, the rest with no meter, I thought this was a 'joke' thread.

    Bracket? You just do it.

    Then I read the rest of the posts and realized it was one of those new fangled inventions...(you know, anything that came after wet plates and flash powder.) Golly, what will they think up next.

    Oh there are some cameras that you can't bracket because it has only 1 shutter speed and 1 aperture.

    Mea culpa! :redface:
    You're right Ricardo. I have my old EOS 5 on the desk now (last used 2001) and yes AEB is there on the back in the sequence ISO-AEB-ECF-BEEP ON/OFF-MULTI-EXPOSURE. :smile:

    Yeap! Curiously, I also last used the one I had about that same year (2001). I believe it went on a part-exchange for an EOS 1N. :smile:

    Strange parallels...
    I bought my EOS 1N in 1995 (at a time when it was costing $3,000 compared to $330 now...:pouty:) and used it only a couple of times as I was partial to the simplicity of the EOS 5, and continued to use that all the way up to 2001 when the rear cover latch broke and the mode control dial pawls stripped (again...). So I ditched the old trooper and reacquainted myself with the 1N.

    EOS 630 and 620 can do AEB for 3 frames from 1/2 to 5 stops in 1/2 stops

    Most of the Contax SLR line will, with the exception of the RTS, RTS II, the S2/S2b, and the older oddballs like the 159mm. The 167MT was the first camera of any make to have auto-bracketing.

    If I recall I think my Minolta Maxxum 9000 will bracket with the Program Back Super 90 attached. It took too many batteries so I stopped using the program back. 171_7103.jpg 171_7105.jpg
