So this camera can adjust the shutter according to the light conditions, good. When I set the ISO manually in photo mode it automatically adjusts the exposure correctly so that the picture looks great. When this is done in timelapse however, it will not adjust the exposure beyond a certain level of shutter speed (around 1/30 sec?). This means that when you try and do a time-lapse from day to night it will just go dark when the sun sets! Despite the camera being able to get very decent night shots on low ISO using a long exposure. So its time-lapse mode is currently pretty useless.

(I know I can setup the exposure in timelapse mode manually to several seconds, but that means that when I start with this is obviously way over-exposed during the day)

Please update the firmware so that we have automatic exposure for a fixed ISO range and/or number from max shutter speed all the way to the minimum shutter speed - with option to adjust EV as well! It seems to work in photo series mode, so why can this not be properly implemented in the timelapse mode!!!?

And please add HDR to the time-lapse shooting modes! You could have the best Action cam, if you only try harder!!

I agree, it would be nice if the exposure time went all the way up to selected interval's maximum in auto mode. For instance the minimum shutter speed allowed in manual mode with 2 seconds interval is 1.3 seconds; but if you choose Auto mode, it won't go slower than 1/8th of a second, although it could.

of course it could go much slower... In the image sequence mode it goes to as low as 30 sec I believe, so really no reason not to have this. But I guess some silly live streaming is sooooo much more important! (latest fimrware updates)!
