Was automatic exposure bracketing feature dropped on Hero 7?

It appears that automatic exposure bracketing feature present on Hero 5 was dropped from Hero 7. True?  Need to be able to generate 5 photos all with different shutter speeds to combine out of camera with HDR software.  Not interested in doing in-camera HDR.

Re: Was automatic exposure bracketing feature dropped on Hero 7?

Can you clarify what you mean by, "automatic exposure bracketing feature present on Hero 5 ". You can control the EV, shutter speed, and ISO on both the HERO5 and HERO7 Black cameras in photo mode. On the HERO7 Black you do need to have Protune turned on and SuperPhoto & HDR turned off to access these settings. If you are taking your photos in RAW, SuperPhoto must be off.
• FOV must be set to Wide.
• Zoom must be off.
• RAW Format is not available for capturing continuous photos.
• For Time Lapse Photo, the Interval must be at least 5 seconds.
• For Night Lapse Photo, the Shutter setting must be at least 5
seconds.

If you are referring to Exposure Control, this too is available.

Obviously I'm not fully understanding the feature you are referring to the HERO5 Black having that the HERO7 Black does not have (or that you haven't identified). Please explain a little more about the feature and we can try to answer more concisely. Specifically, please include the setting in the HERO5 Black, how you are accessing it, and the process you are undertaking.
