Mirrorless cameras...how can I retire my Promote Remote?

Anybody out there using mirrorless cameras for multiple bracketed exposures, anywhere from 9-13 stops at 1.0 EV?

Im thinking about upgrading to a Canon mirrorless something but can’t seem to find any details regarding anyone who needs more than 3 bracketed exposures. I love the speed of my old Canon 6D with Promote Remote handling all the exposures, but, looking for something smaller, lighter, and with less stuff in my kit.

Not to make this into a Canon/Nikon debate but Nikon has always allowed for full bracketing in camera. I haven’t tried the Z series but I’d imagine they carried that feature over as well.

Care to define “full bracketing”?

Up to 9 exposures and from .3 to 2ev I believe. You use the combo of ev range and number of exposures to fill the DR of the sensor… so at 2ev max exposures drops to 5 because where else can you go.

9 tends to be overkill for most hdrs.

If only I had lots of Nikon lenses… :-). Thanks for the insight.

My personal belief is that a 28-300, and a fisheye is pretty much all you would ever need for a shoot kit. But I like to travel light :slight_smile:

Agreed. My Canon 8-15mm fisheye and 24-105 is all thats left in my pelican.

Looks like here’s your answer:

R series Canon and an adapter should be all you need.


Thanks @cnoellert. 7 exposures at 2.0EV increments would surely be sufficient, right?

@randy sorry for the late reply… 7 at 1 or 1.3 is usually what I shoot and that more than covers it. If I’m stressed for time I’ll do 5 at 2. Modern sensors have more than enough DR to fill the gaps.
