Exposure Bracketing

What are ideal stops?

My camera has the option to set the f stops in increments of 1/3 stop. Is this too little to capture the spectrum? Is having a + / - 1 stop better? Advise appreciated. Thanks.

Where do you plan to use it? It all depends on your purpose. most people go for 1/8 when they're on the go Reply to this

Hi Chris,
Essentially I am an outdoor guy. Would 1/8 suffice? Will the difference be obvious at +/- 1/8?

When I bracketing its usually in order to attempt HDR photography and then I tend to use full stops and bracket either one up and one down or two up and two down. Then these pictures can be blended together to make some surreal pictures that are fun!

Otherwise I don't use bracketing because I tend to like to pick the right F/stop and stick to it.
