    Hi. I've read posts and the manual, about how to take bracketed photos. Unless I have totally misunderstood the directions, I am supposed to hold down on the shutter button and a box will pop up giving me choices on exposure and bracketing, etc. this doesn't happen on my version. I can hold the button down for 10 seconds and all that happens is it takes a photo when I eventually let up.

    So what am I doing wrong? I'm using the latest version of Go for my Phantom 3 Standard.

    Thanks in advance!

    I think mine only offers 3 or 5 for AEB settings.

    A bracketed exposure is when the camera takes 3 to 5 photos, each with different exposures. Then you use a program like Adobe Lightroom to merge them. Then the overexposed images fill in the shadows and the underexposed fills in the bright spots. It's the best way to make an HDR image.
