Definition from own experience or research:
I fotosammenheng brukes gjerne uttrykket ''Bracket exposure'' om å helgardere seg under vanskelige lysforhold ved å ta flere eksponeringer; f.eks anbefalt eksponering + en blender overeksponering + en blender undereksponering.

Example sentence(s):
  • Det har alle de vanlige automatiske og manuelle eksponeringsfunksjonene, slik som lukkerprioritet, blenderprioritet, manuell eksponering, programautomatikk, bulb, brakettering (både for eksponering, hvitbalanse, blits). E-500 har til og med brakettering for fokus. - Akam  

Med 9 G-treff er ikke begrepet akkurat utbredt. De fleste fotografer sier bare bracketing, altså bruker det engelske begrepet.
