I don't know if this is a current subject or not since I did not see one. On my D7100, in the Shooting menu, when I select High Dynamic Range, I get HDR Mode, followed by a blank line, followed by HDR Strength.
In a training video for the D7100, I see when the HDR setting is activated, there is HDR Mode, followed by Exposure Differential, followed by Smoothing.
My camera only takes two photos in HDR. The D7100 in the training video takes up to 5 with the default being 3.
Rick, I know the difference between the two. What I am referring to is the difference between the HDR menu in my D7100 and the same HDR menu in the D7100 in Michael the Maven D7100 training video. Same camera, different menus.

Len, I know that and have read the manual. What was confusing was that the Michael the Maven instructional video I received had selections for 3 or 5 HDR photos in addition to the normal two I am familiar with. Come to find out as stated in an earlier reply, Michael used a prototype D7100s, which has not yet been released. I have found no information about the s model.
Carl, that would be great if Nikon allowed more than 2 photos for the built-in HDR feature. However if Michael used a prototype camera to make an instruction video, that was not only a dis-service to those buying the video but it might have violated a non-disclosure agreement. I don't know but that's very strange.
I use my D7100 for HDR a lot. To do this, I set it manually: => BKT and then in the top, right LCD screen you can choose or bracketed shots and choose the exposure compensation 0, 1, 2, 3.
The problem for me is after setting the number of bracketed photos, I used to forget how many shots were taken, so I have converted to writing down the shot number (in the back LCD) for the beginning and end of the bracketed series.
The second "bite" I have gotten is after shooting HDR and wanting to go back to single shots, I have sometimes forgotten to reset (using the BKT button) back to 0.

There is an easier way. Put the shutter release on continuous (lo or hi). The camera will take the required shots then stop while you hold down the release. To track the start and stop in the image flow, take a picture of your hand before and after the bracketing run.
