Changing the Number of Exposures on a Canon 6D (HDR Bracketing)

Trying to change the number of exposure on the Canon 6D for HDR photography? I had trouble finding the setting but you can take up to 7 exposures at once on the 6D.

One of the selling points of having a high end camera is having the ability to capture multiple exposures with one button hence ihitthebutton. On my Canon T1i I was stuck with only capturing three exposures at a time. Luckily with my Canon 6D I can capture up to seven, I normally do five though. When I first got this camera it took me a bit of going around the menus to figure out how to change it from three exposures to five so I present to you a short video on how to do it.

Interface for selecting number of bracketed shots on Canon 6D

To sum up the video just head over to the custom menu tab (the last one with the star) and hit My Menu Settings then hit Register to My Menu. There you’ll have to scroll down until you see Number of Bracketed Shots which will allow the option to show up in your custom menu area, from there you’ll be able to select 3-7 shots for your bracketed shots.

Now you’ll be able to take more photos in your bracketed shots on your Canon 6D. Perfect for landscape photography or real estate photos!

  1. Hello there. The video was really good but i was still unable to take HRD photos. My camera it does make the sound of taking 3 photos, but i can ajust the exposure as you did. The first time you check your display and show us that it sets to 3 diferent expouse ( expouse comp. AEB settings) i already had problems cause mine it just has one bar. I already set the HDR setting and what you showed to me on this videos but i just can´t figure it out why is not working for me… thanks for your help
