    My friend was talking about how he can set his camera to to take 3 or 4 different exposures in a row without him having to change the camera settings. Can I do this with my D40? I was looking over the manual and in the part where it (to me) looks like it is talking about bracketing (that is what he called what he does) it just say's that my camera has an auto-exposure feature or something like that. Is there a way for me to take 3 or 4 exposures at one time on my d40 or not? And if there is, How do I do it?

    I don't think you get auto-bracketing on the D40, but you can manually set exposure compensation for much the same purpose - it's just not as fast.

    The D40/40x/60 do not have bracketing. You could take the picture in RAW format and mess with the exposure in post-processing.

    I guess I will just need to get a better tripod then. My tripod moves just allitle when I got to change the settings.
