Hero 7 Black suggested improvements

Hi, I bought the GoPro Hero 7 Black recently and it's a great little camera. However, there're a few improvements I'd like to see in the camera. Is it possible to update the firmware to include these? Or can the upgrades only be achieved through the release of the next model?

 

Specifically:

- HDR for video
- More settings in Protune (longer shutter exposure - up to 2 minutes)
- Stablization in 4K, 2.7K
- Linear mode in 4K

Thanks for the suggestion!

We'll have this passed along to the team.

Thanks!
