What range for exposure bracketing?
I wonder what range do you usually set when shooting in exposure bracketing
mode? Also, are there any general guidelines/tips for deciding most useful range?
I am asking this question with regard to shooting digital, when there is immediate feedback on the preview screen of approximate result - shouldn't it help to select better range for bracketing?
Thanks in advance for all hints.

usually it's 1/3 stop over and 1/3 stop under for DSLR
for film, I bracket in 1 stop over/under due to the latitude it offers

Usually the cameras allow to compensate up to +/-2. Any idea in what conditions it might make sense to compensate that much?

extreme conditions like shooting in very high light contrast scenes. or a very high contrast scene like very strong backlight and your flash light not powderful enuf for fill
