On the Pentax K-50, one activates exposure bracketing by pressing right on the four-way controller, then selecting exposure bracketing from a small menu. The problem is that I quite often have the focus mode set to "select", in which the four-way controller is used to select focus points instead. In that case, pressing right on the controller won't go into the menu that allows me to activate exposure bracketing, but will instead just move the focus point.
So it seems that if I'm manually selecting the focus point then the only way to activate exposure bracketing is to change the focus point mode to something else (which requires going through a few steps of a menu in itself), then turn exposure bracketing on, then go back into the menu to change the focus point mode back to "select". This involves quite a lot of steps and I'm wondering if there's a quicker way to do it.
I'm aware that it's possible to get around this by assigning a functionn to the RAW/Fx button. (I could either use RAW/Fx to toggle exposure bracketing or to change the focus point.) However, if I want to use the RAW/Fx button for something else, is there some other way to turn on exposure bracketing that will work if I'm using the controller to select the focus point?
