HERO6 HDR

From GoPro Homepage, regarding HDR:
"Answer
High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a feature in HERO6 Black, available on single and timelapse mode, that retains a greater level of detail and color in an image."

This was the one reason I bought the Hero6, but now I can't seem to find it in Time lapse mode. As I mainly use the Hero6 for video and timelapses, it is kind of a big deal...
Am I just blind (or stupid) or is this a feature that has been removed (or never implemented...)?

Re: HERO6 HDR

The Interval must be at least 5 seconds.
If Protune is turned on, HDR is available only if Exposure Value Compensation is less than zero and Color is set to GoPro Color.

Also,
Automatically turns off HDR in lowlight conditions to prevent noise
Automatically turns off HDR to prevent blur if there’s too much movement in the shot

Re: HERO6 HDR

Hello @1ceman

 

The HDR feature is available for Time Lapse Mode. As this advanced setting is not accessible when the Time Lapse mode is on, you only need to make sure that the HDR is on while in Single Photo mode before you change the mode to Time Lapse mode.  

 

Thanks, 

Marius

Re: HERO6 HDR

Is there any exact information to be found regarding this feature? There is nothing in the product manual, at least I couldn't find it...
Is there certain restrictions on the settings for HDR to be available e.g. interval?
