I was setting up to do an HDR pano and found it challenging with the M9. Maybe I'm missing something here and someone can point it out.....
What I want to do is ( on a pano head) point the camera left and have it take 3 shots (0, -1ev, +1ev), then point it to the middle and take the SAME exposures, and then again to the right. I will then stitch these and hdr them later.
Here's the M9 issue:
The bracketing function only seems to work in A mode. This is fine for a single shot HDR.
However, when doing a pano I need the middle and right shots to be exactly the same exposures as the left shots.
If I leave the camera in A mode it likely will determine a different base exposure for the middle and right shots.
So, my question: is there a way on the M9 to bracket in manual mode - i.e. where I set the shutter speed?
The workaround is that I manually bracket the shots by turning the shutter speed dial. However, this takes time, introduces camera movement and is less sophisticated than my Panasonic P&S.
I like doing HDR panos, and was planning a large series soon - hopefully I'm just missing an easy setting here.
