Re: Fusion Timelapse Exposure

The lack of manual exposure and or exposure lock and the lack of White Balance control is inexcusable for ANY CAMERA built in the last 10yrs.  I couldn’t believe it when I received mine.  Sending back.  Lack of the most basic photographic functions is ridiculous beyond belief. Such an amateur move on GoPro’s part.

Hi @andrewccm

 

You can control exposure value on Fusion however the other option isn't available.
Please make sure to send your feedback here: https://gopro.com/feedback

Re: Fusion Timelapse Exposure

Can you explain how you can control the exposure?  There is no place that I can find to lock it so that doesn't change when the light changes.  You can dial in some +/- EV but that only works in relationship to its AUTO metering.  I want to be able to set it to what I want and not have it change for any reason.  Sunsets for instance... you don't want ISO or Shutter changing so that it continually brightens to compensate for darkness... Walking in and out of shadow areas... the white balance changes and the exposure pumps up and then back down when you walk back into brighter area.  We (I) need to be able to lock exposure and WB for it to be a tool that I was expecting it to be.   Thanks for your reply!  I appreciate it.
